Aubrey Trail, the man accused of using the dating app Tinder to lure a Nebraska woman to her death, slashed his own throat in the middle of his murder trial at the Saline County Courthouse.
Trail shouted "Bailey is innocent and I curse you all" before he slashed his neck and fell from a wheelchair during court proceedings.
Trail was likely referencing 25-year-old Bailey Boswell, who's also been charged with first-degree murder in the gruesome death and dismemberment of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe.
Boswell is awaiting trial.
He swiped what may have been a pen across his neck. Deputies and others rushed to help Trail as he lay on the courtroom floor in Wilber, Nebraska.
Medics wheeled him out of the courthouse on a gurney and loaded him into an ambulance to give him more medical aid.
It's unclear what Trails' injuries are and when the trial might resume. Authorities say he's had a stroke and two heart attacks since his arrest.
Prosecutors say the pair planned Loofe's abduction and killing. Trail's attorney says her death was an accident during a consensual sex fantasy.
This is when the deputy subdued Aubrey Trail after he slashed his throat. This happened in front of the jury, judge, and Sydney Loofe's family. He was taken to the hospital. @3NewsNowOmaha pic.twitter.com/s90EEGadP9
