WILBER, Neb. — During testimony Monday morning in his murder trial, Aubrey Trail suddenly shouted and slashed his neck with what appeared to be a pen.
"Bailey is innocent and I curse you all," he shouted in the courtroom, then slashed at his neck.
Trail 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.
It was not immediately clear when the trial, which is now in its second week, will resume.
Trail and his girlfriend, Bailey Boswell, lured Sydney Loofe to her death via the online dating app Tinder, according to prosecutors. Both Trail and Boswell face the possibility of the death penalty if convicted.
This is a developing story.
