 A judge has stopped the Harvey Updyke trial before a jury is even seated! Updyke is accused of poisoning the trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn. His attorney also wants the judge to exclude some statements made by his client. We'll tell you why.

Join us for more on these stories, plus weather and sports tonight at five and six on WSFA 12 News. 

See ya then,
