A scheduled motion hearing for Sheridan resident Shawn Osborne, who is charged with 1st Degree Murder for allegedly killing Gerald Bloom in January, took a strange twist Thursday morning when of all things a nose bleed put a halt to the courtroom proceedings shortly after they began.

Osborne's defense attorney, Robert Jones, developed a nose bleed and after a short recess, announced that he needed to see a doctor about the situation. 4th Judicial District Court Judge John Fenn said that he didn't expect Jones to proceed with the hearing, especially considering the critical stage of the case, as Osborne's trial is scheduled for mid-November.

There were four motions that were to be addressed in the hearing, with the two biggest ones being a motion to change venue and a motion to suppress Osborne's statement that he made to investigators.

Judge Fenn rescheduled the motion hearing for September 16th at 11 a.m.
