PHOENIX (AP) -- Attorneys for Jodi Arias have filed a motion asking that prosecutors hand over reports relating to the investigation of a computer belonging to Travis Alexander.

Arias was convicted of killing Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home in 2008. Her sentencing retrial last month focused on evidence on Alexander's computer that the defense says contained pornography.

In a motion filed Dec. 31, attorneys request that the reports of three Mesa Police detectives regarding their analysis of the computer's hard drive be handed over.

Attorneys allege the state is violating evidence laws by not releasing the reports.

Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in May 2013, but jurors deadlocked on her punishment. Prosecutors are asking a new jury to impose the death sentence.
