Jodi Arias taken off suicide watch

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Ever since her verdict and interview with FOX 10's Troy Hayden, Jodi Arias has been on suicide watch. She was unable to see guests during that period.

After her conviction in an exclusive interview, Arias told FOX 10's Troy Hayden that she would prefer to die.

She said, "I said years ago that I'd rather get death than life and that's still true today.  I believe death is the ultimate freedom so I'd rather just have my freedom as soon as we get it."

Monday afternoon, doctors released Arias from a psychiatric ward. She has been transferred back to Estrella Jail where she will be housed alone in a cell under "closed custody status."

She will be allowed out of her cell one hour each day for access to phone calls and showers, MCSO said. It's a lot like what she'll find if she's sent to death row.

Wednesday, jurors will consider whether a death sentence should be an option for the former waitress. She will be back in court then.

They'll decide is there are aggravating or mitigating factors in her case.

Will she get life in prison or the death penalty? Attorneys were supposed to argue that last Thursday, but it was delayed.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
