UPDATE:

The murder trial of a man accused in the 2017 killing of a 24-year-old Lincoln woman continued Wednesday with the defendant once again absent.

Aubrey Trail, 52, who along with Bailey Boswell is accused of murdering and dismembering Sydney Loofe, was also absent from the proceedings Tuesday, after cutting his throat in the courtroom on Monday.  One of Trail's attorneys said he opted not to appear. 

Regardless, more people took the stand at during the trial in Saline County.

Earlier Wednesday, law enforcement said they submitted several items from a couple of Trail's vehicles as well as from rural Clay County.

Some forensics analysts provided test results from those item.  They said none of the evidence from the vehicles had signs of Sydney's blood or DNA.

But a glove from the search in Clay County got a hit.

"This DNA profile from the outside surface of the glove is 31 quadrillion times more likely if it originated from Ms. Loofe than if it originated from someone else," said Marcy Plaza, who works in the FBI's lab.

Plaza said that's meets their highest level of support for Sydney's DNA.

She said she got the same findings from a blood stained towel, pajama pants and a piece cut up jeans found out in the county.

The murder trial of a man accused in the 2017 killing of a 24-year-old Lincoln woman continued Wednesday with the defendant once again absent.

Aubrey Trail, 52, who along with Bailey Boswell is accused of murdering and dismembering Sydney Loofe, was also absent from the proceedings Tuesday, after cutting his throat in the courtroom on Monday. A Channel 8 Eyewitness News reporter was told Trail opted not to be present Wednesday. 

Trail yelled "Bailey is innocent, and I curse you all," before slashing his throat several times and falling out of his wheelchair. Security guards swarmed him and he was later taken out of the courtroom - seemingly unconscious - on a stretcher. 

The gruesome act was the latest in a string of distractions that have played out during the trial. Due to health concerns, Trail did not appear for one day of testimony prior to his absence Tuesday. The Saline County Court House also had problems with elevators and air conditioning. There was also a rumor of a juror "blogging" about the case online. 

Trail received medical attention - including stitches - for the cuts to his neck. It is unclear what exactly Trail used to cut himself, but a Channel 8 Eyewitness News reporter in the courtroom observed a blade of some sort in his hand and in an evidence bag taken out of the courtroom. Authorities have so far declined to comment on how Trail was able to obtain the object. 

Prosecutors say Loofe's death was a planned abduction and killing. Trail's attorney says Loofe's killing was an accident that occurred as she, Trail and Boswell played out a consensual sex fantasy. Trail is facing the death penalty in the case.
