Thomas & # 39; Tommy & # 39; Gilbert Jr. made another outburst in court this morning, leading the judge to give him a final warning that more disruptions would result in him being removed from his murder trial.
His mother, Shelley Gilbert, was in the gallery on Wednesday morning to testify against her son in the murder of his father, Thomas Gilbert Sr., in 2015.
When defense lawyer Arnold Levine cited a photograph of a father and son's camping trip as evidence, this led to an outburst of the defendant, who muttered about & # 39; suppression & # 39 ;.
The judge removed the jury and the witness, Mrs. Gilbert, before Gilbert Jr. was warned, who seemed messy and, above all, kept his eyes on the floor.
& # 39; It is extremely disruptive. This is my last warning for you, "Judge Melissa Jackson said.
At Tuesday's hearing, Judge Jackson urged Gilbert Jr. to refrain from & # 39; outbursts & # 39; after he & # 39; object & # 39; had voiced! several times in court.

Gilbert Jr. then made a lengthy, illegible request to the court, citing the First and Fourth Amendments.
& # 39; The majority of the evidence used in this case is eligible for suppression under the fourth amendment, & # 39; said Gilbert Jr. partially.
Gilbert & # 39; s request was rejected by the judge who said the law he quoted was not relevant.
Police arrested the son of Thomas Gilbert Sr on a murder charge after saying he was going to his father's apartment in Manhattan, shot him in the head after a fight over money, and tried to make it look like a suicide
His defender, Arnold Levine, told the judge that the outbursts of Gilbert Jr. were evidence of his incompetence.
Levine said: & # 39; He refuses to meet with me. He undermines and sabotages my ability to defend him.
& # 39; These things are proof of his incompetence and not of his competence. Anyone can go to the law library and print things without knowing they mean it. & # 39;
The judge took note of Levine & # 39; s comments but said a psychiatrist could not determine in February that he was unsuitable for trial.
Gilbert Jr then said: & Given the rules of interrogation and controversies, I would like to request a court-appointed defense. & # 39;
Judge Jackson also denied this request because the trial is already underway.
The once close-fitting and handsome Gilbert Jr. first appeared yesterday to tackle murder attacks in the death of his father.
Prosecutors said Tuesday in court that Gilbert Jr. used a .05 Glock in 2005 to assassinate his father Thomas Gilbert Sr. through the mouth of the gun & # 39; tight & # 39; pressing the victim's head and pulling the trigger.
& # 39; When he killed his father, the suspect was fully aware of what he was doing, and he was sure it was wrong & # 39 ;, prosecutor Craig Ortner said in his opening statements, adding that the son had planned the crime by driving illegally to Ohio buy the gun and visit hireakiller.com and hitman.com websites.
In response, Gilbert Jr. & # 39; s lawyer Arnold Levine said he suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.

In the courtroom, the 911 heard that his wife and mother Shelley Gilbert did it when she found her husband in a pool of nuts. When the operator asks who shot her husband, Shelley replies: & # 39; My son who's crazy, but I didn't know he was that crazy. & # 39;
& # 39; I had no idea he was that crazy, & # 39; she repeated.
For Shelley Gilbert, 72, & # 39; it was clear that he had done it. & # 39; Disappointed with telling her daughter Clare, now 29, of the 70-year-old Gilbert & # 39; s death, Shelley said: & # 39; Dad is dead and Tommy shot him. & # 39;
Thomas Gilbert Sr. was a wealthy hedge of the New York hedge fund who was shot in the head after a fight with his son
Prosecutors said on Tuesday that when Gilbert Jr.'s mother returned to the family's apartment, she saw her 33-year-old husband lying dead on the floor, blood and pieces of brain dust that flowed into a puddle next to his head.
It has been four years since the day in January 2015 that 34-year-old Gilbert Jr. went to his apartment in Manhattan and asked his mother to buy him a sandwich while talking to his father.
She had not been away long when a single gun shot sounded. When Shelley returned, she had to find her husband dead. He was hit in the head and held the Glock gun while it was on his chest.
According to the police, it was a clumsy attempt by Gilbert Jr. to organize his father's suicide. It didn't convince anyone.
The 911 call reveals that Shelley had told the coordinator that it was her son who killed her husband, giving the police his address and a detailed description.
When Gilbert Jr. was arrested shortly afterwards in his apartment in Chelsea, the police found a supply of hollow point bullets, a laser gun, handcuffs, a skimming machine and 21 blank credit cards.
You can hardly imagine a more catastrophic decline of the man who once seemed to be Gilbert Jr.'s predecessor, for the man he is now suspected of becoming.
He is strikingly handsome; tall, with tousled blond hair and the fitness machine of the enthusiastic surfer he was.
His father was an investment banker, his mother a former debutante. They had Upper East Side apartments and swam in their home in the Hamptons.
He was educated at the most exclusive schools in Manhattan and went to study at Princeton.
But in the time since Gilbert Sr.'s death, another version of his son's life – a less golden one than this superficial precc – has emerged.
This is the luxury apartment in Manhattan where the alleged murder started
Manhattan socialist Anna Rothschild, 51, dated the suspect murderer (pictured together) in 2014 and said he was a loner with few friends
Despite his Princeton diploma and talks about business ventures, the truth is that Gilbert Jr. had spectacularly failed to launch.
Speaking with DailyMail.com shortly after the arrest of Gilbert Jr., ex-girlfriend, socialite Anna Rothschild, 51, who went out with him in 2014, told of a tense and broken relationship between Gilbert Jr. and his father.
The man she knew was a loner with few friends who blamed his father for not being good enough & # 39; was for the older man.
Gilbert Jr told friends that he started his own hedge fund, but according to Rothschild he was aimless and unemployed and showed little real interest in change.
He was busy & # 39; busy & # 39; with his father, she said, and admitted that a friend once warned her that Gilbert Jr. would cut her into small pieces & # 39 ;.
By the time Rothschild and Gilbert met Jr., he already had a history of violence bad enough to see him arrested more than once.
During his stay at Princeton, he was arrested for possession of cocaine and psychedelic mushrooms and charged with a third-degree assault when he ran into a nurse who treated him after being admitted to hospital.
He completed an intervention program for the trial, and the attack was completed the following year in 2008, completing his studies in Economics.

According to public prosecutors, the process of spiritual unraveling was accelerated by Gilbert Jr.'s fear that his father would cut him off financially.
He allegedly decided to stop paying the $ 2,400 rent at his son's apartment in Chelsea and to reduce his weekly payment from $ 600 to $ 400
The financial reports that were sent to the court show that Gilbert Sr. was not as financially equal as some people believed.
It was thought that he was worth $ 200 million at the time of his death. In fact, he had only $ 10,000 in shares and bonds, less than $ 20,000 in cash and pension funds and around $ 500,000 in & # 39; various assets & # 39 ;.
It is not clear whether Gilbert Jr. was aware of this when he started his conversation with the older man that day.
Friends have since told of a seemingly long history of mental health problems by Gilbert Jr. He was on some sort of medication during his days in Princeton.
He told his ex-Rothschild that over the years he had been to Xanax for anxiety, had undergone considerable psychotherapy, and some reports suggest that he had seen a psychiatrist as recently as the month prior to his father's shooting.
