SALINE COUNTY, NE (KMTV) — Aubrey Trail's argument that slashing his own neck in court should have resulted in a mistrial has been rejected.
Saline County District Court Judge Vicky Johnson overruled the motion on Monday.
"The Nebraska rule on disruptions caused by the Defendant is clear," a court document says, "a defendant may not cause his own mistrial through his own misbehavior."
Trail, who was convicted in July for the murder of Sydney Loofe, could get the death penalty.
