Jodi Arias Drops the Dramatics, Gets Off Suicide Watch
Drama queen/convicted murderer Jodi Arias has been taken off "suicide protocol," according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
Arias was placed on suicide watch after a jury found her guilty of first-degree, premeditated murder in her killing of Travis Alexander.

Arias, who now faces a potential death sentence, previously claimed that "death is the ultimate freedom," in saying that she'd prefer to be executed rather than spend the rest of her life in prison.
The day before the verdict was read, Arias posted on Twitter (with help from a friend on the outside), "I wanted so much to avoid trial but the State forced it. My only other option was suicide and, well . . ."
But, as of just a few minutes ago, MCSO says doctors have released Arias from this "suicide protocol."
She's already been transferred back to Estrella Jail, and the Sheriff's Office says she is housed alone in her cell, and is let out for one hour each day for access to phones and showers.
The aggravation phase of her trial is scheduled to start on Wednesday.
