The Nebraska courthouse was thrown into chaos on Monday morning when Trail slit his own throat after listening to a witness testimony during a court proceeding.
Aubrey Trail, 52, accused of killing his girlfriend’s Tinder date and his 24-year-old girlfriend Bailey Boswell were charged with the first degree murder of Sydney Loofe, also 24.
“Bailey is innocent, and I curse you all,” he shouted before slicing his neck with a concealed blade. A video of the incident shows deputies and court staff rushing to him amid horrified screams as the judge looks on. According to reports, blood spilled from his neck as he fell out of the wheelchair he had been using.
He was rushed to hospital; one of his defense attorneys later confirmed he had survived and is expected back in court when the trial resumes on Tuesday.
