JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A federal judge is barring release of certain visitor information for an imprisoned man accused of killing his wife on an Alaska cruise last summer.

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Burgess is prohibiting staff with the state Department of Corrections from releasing, without a court order, the name or title of any member of Kenneth Manzanares' legal team, as well as the date or type of the visit.

Members of the legal team include lawyers, investigators and experts.

Manzanares' attorneys had sought a more sweeping order that also would have barred prosecutors from accessing Manzanares' calls and correspondence during the case.

Prosecutors called the defense request overbroad and unnecessary. Manzanares, who is from Utah, is charged with murder in the death of his wife aboard a cruise ship last year.
