PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Attorneys for convicted killer Jodi Arias will be in court Friday morning to hear motions on her upcoming sentencing retrial.

The hearing is closed to the public.

Maricopa County officials say no settlement has been reached in the Jodi Arias case, but there are plans for the attorneys to meet next week to discuss a possible plea deal.

"The court asked if the parties would be willing to discuss a potential settlement," said Maricopa County Attorney spokesman Jerry Cobb. "Consistent with what the county attorney has said all along, the state is always willing to discuss possible resolutions to the case. Neither side has presented an outline of an agreement or an official position to the court."

The settlement conference is scheduled for Oct. 24.

Cobb said the conference will be made in front of retired Maricopa County Superior Court Judge James Keppel.

Settlement conferences are usually handled by a judge other than the one who presides over the case.

Arias' attorneys have filed a motion to block live video cameras from the sentencing phase, which would be a radical departure for the case that drew interest from around the world.

The death penalty trial was broadcast live on cable news networks and streamed online, including on cbs5az.com/live.

Defense attorneys have also asked that they be able to monitor new jurors' Twitter accounts to ensure that details of the trial are not being communicated and to ensure a fair trial for their client when a new jury is seated to determine whether she will be sentenced to prison or to death.

On May 8, Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, but jurors couldn't agree on a sentence, and Stephens declared a mistrial in that portion.

A new jury could decide if Arias will serve life in prison or receive a death sentence.
