Jodi Arias is on suicide watch after being found guilty of first degree murder Wednesday. The Arizona woman killed her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander five years ago.
Arias faces life in prison and even the possibility of the death penalty. She was put on suicide watch in light of statements she made to a TV station in Phoenix.
"I believe death is the ultimate freedom, so I'd rather just have my freedom sooner, as soon as I can get it."
The decision will be ultimately up to the jury that convicted her. They were expected back in the courtroom Thursday for the start of the sentencing phase, but it was delayed until next Wednesday.
