Recent developments in the Caryn Kelley manslaughter trial could potentially push the case into next week.

During testimony for the defense Friday, prosecutors realized that the expert called to rebut testimony from the Orange County chief medical examiner was talking about evidence they didn't know he had examined, and the judge ruled that the defense inadvertently failed to share information with the state.

Kelley is accused of killing Phillip Peatross, 46, who died of a gunshot wound to the face at a home in the College Park area of Orlando.

The defense's expert said evidence suggests Peatross' death could have been accidental or a suicide.

Prosecutors will be deposing the witness during the lunch break, after which he will probably resume testimony.

It is unknown whether Kelley will testify today.
