PHOENIX -- The sentencing retrial in the Jodi Arias murder case is still on schedule to begin Sept. 8.

A status conference was held in Maricopa County Superior Court on Wednesday.

Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander, but jurors couldn't reach a decision a sentence.

A new jury will be selected at the start of the retrial.

At Wednesday's hearing, Arias' defense team claimed prosecutor Juan Martinez has not been forthcoming about potential witnesses for the sentencing retrial.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
