NEWPORT, N.H. (AP) - A Vermont man accused of killing his wife in New Hampshire on the day she filed for divorce doesn't want prosecutors to have access to recordings of his phone calls and other communications.

The lawyer representing 44-year-old James Robarge told a judge it's a matter of his client's right to privacy.

Prosecutor Diana Fenton said Robarge has a limited expectation of privacy at the state prison in Concord, where calls are recorded and letters are monitored.

Defense lawyer Alex Parsons said he is not arguing that the prison should stop the monitoring, but it shouldn't hand over any communication unless it represents a security concern, or could be considered evidence in a criminal case.

Robarge was charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death of estranged wife Kelly Robarge.
