Phoenix, AZ (CNN) — Convicted killer Jodi Arias has been admitted into a Phoenix prison psychiatric ward after the sentencing phase of her trial was postponed until next week.
According to authorities, Arias is under constant supervision in the ward at Lower Buckeye Jail.
Arias and her attorneys met with a judge in a closed-door hearing Thursday.
The hearing was sealed and it's unclear what they discussed but afterward officials abruptly announced the cancellation of Thursday's court proceedings.
The trial resumes next Wednesday.
Arias was convicted this week of first degree murder in the brutal 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander.
