Just hours after a guilty verdict came in her murder trial, Jodi Arias has been put on suicide watch, according to Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
A jury found Arias guilty of first-degree murder on Wednesday afternoon in the death of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
Arias did an interview with KSAZ-TV following Wednesday's verdict and, according to MCSO, "in light of some of her statements during the interview, Arias was brought to jail and per Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, was placed on suicide protocol."
MCSO said until she is taken off suicide watch, she will not be allowed to give any interviews.
The penalty phase of trial will begin on Thursday afternoon.
