WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Dalia Dippolito's attorneys are calling out state prosecutors in a motion filed Tuesday.

A judge recently granted the state's request to gag all attorneys from making any public comments on the murder for hire case. A motion filed by Dippolito's attorneys suggest the state is in violation of its own motion.

The motion refers to a YouTube video still posted online by the Boynton Beach Police Department of Dalia Dippolito's arrest.

The video provides a brief description of the case and includes her reaction after an officer makes her believe her husband is dead. Dippolito is accused of hiring a hit man to kill her husband. 

The motion says the state should prove why it is not in criminal contempt of court for allowing evidence or facts of the case to remain public after the judge issued the gag order. 

Dippolito's third trial is expected to begin in June.
