After the man accused of murdering Sydney Loofe slashed his own neck in today, he was treated for his injuries and has been ordered to be back in court tomorrow, according to District Court Judge Vicky Johnson.
Aubrey Trail slashed his neck with what appeared to be a pen and shouted as a witness took the stand in Saline County District Court on Monday morning.
"Bailey is innocent and I curse you all," he shouted in the courtroom, then slashed at his neck, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
After Trail slashed his neck several times, he fell to the floor, out of his wheelchair, and appeared pale and wasn't moving as deputies rushed over to him.
Saline County District Judge Vicky Johnson then ordered the courtroom cleared of onlookers and news media as deputies attempted to administer first aid to Trail.
Reporters said they witnessed blood coming from Trail's neck. It's unclear to the extent of his injuries.
The judge has now adjourned proceedings for the day. She said Trail is back in custody and will appear in handcuffs for the remainder of the trial. The judge then spoke with each juror individually, asking them not to take the outburst into consideration. The trial is expected to resume again at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
