ELY, Nev. (KOLO) The Nevada Department of Corrects says death row inmate Scott Dozier has been removed from suicide watch at Ely State Prison.

According to Brooke Keast, Dozier was placed on the watch since his stay of execution last week after making comments that he would kill himself if the state did not carry out his sentence.

Dozier was scheduled to be executed today, November 14th, after he voluntarily gave up his appeals. But his executed has been stayed after a judge ruled there was valid concerns over the paralytic that would be used in the lethal injection process.

The case is now heading to the Nevada Supreme Court. Dozier is a two-time convicted murderer and was sentenced to death in 2007.
