Transcript for Arias Trial Gets Crazier After Verdict
But first that shocking twist at the jodi arias trial. Court suddenly postponed on thursday just as a jury was to begin considering her fate. Abc's ryan owens joins us now from phoenix, arizona, with the latest on this. Good morning, ryan. Reporter: Robin, good morning to you. So now no trial until next wednesday after the judge abruptly can what was supposed to be the start of the aggravation phase. Why did she do it? No reason given. So more delays and more drama in a case that's already seen way too much of both. Count one, first degree murder, guilty. Reporter: Is it possible that jodi arias murder trial got even more bizarre after the verdict was read? Consider this, the convicted killer is right now on suicide watch. Her case is on hold till next week, and the s.W.A.T. Team swarmed in phoenix hotel after a man allegedly threatened to bomb the courthouse. No, never mess around with any threat. Reporter: Hard-charging sheriff joe arpaio tells abc news arias will stay on suicide watch at this sprawling desert jail at least through the weekend. He put her here wednesday after she told a fox station here in phoenix she'd rather die than spend her life in prison. The worst outcome for me would be natural life. I would much rather die sooner than later. I said years ago I'd rather get death than life and still true today. Reporter: She granted that interview 20 minutes after a jury convicted her of the premeditated murder of her ex-boyfriend travis alexander. But two days before she tweeted this from behind bars with the help of her friend "i wanted so much to avoid trial but the state forced it. My only other option was suicide and, well --" even though her court hearing thursday was postponed detectives say this man didn't realize that. The s.W.A.T. Team and bomb squad descended on his phoenix hotel and arrested him. He's accused of using his twitter account to post bomb threats against the courthouse where arias is on trial and bragged the bombs would go off just as her case was supposed to get under way thursday. Inside his hotel room detectives say they found backpacks and ammunition, but no bombmaking material. I'm a little concerned whether there could be others involved. We're hopeful that this is an isolated incident. Reporter: That young man now facing a terrorism-related charge. Authorities here not messing around as the national spotlight on this case is not going anywhere any time soon.
