Despite the clouds of secrecy surrounding Jodi Ann Arias' 2008 murder conviction, the charged killer has now asked for more secrecy in her chilling case.

According to FOX 10, her legal team asked the Arizona Court of Appeals, last Friday, to block the public from having access to the opening brief in her appeal.

"The contents of the opening brief may endanger some members of the public, given the continuing interest in this case by the public and the media," her lawyers vaguely wrote in a recent statement.

A spokeswoman for the Arizona attorney general's office told the outlet that the agency is opposing Arias' request.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Arias was found guilty of murder when investigators discovered her ex-boyfriend, Travis Victor Alexander's dead body inside his Mesa, Arizona home.

Jodi Ann Arias eventually confessed to the homicide, saying she had killed Alexander in self-defense after dealing with domestic violence.

She is currently serving a life sentence for first-degree murder.
