Slaying suspects sentenced in unrelated gold coin scheme

August 3, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A man and woman charged with murder in the slaying of a Lincoln woman have been sentenced to prison for an unrelated gold coin scheme.

Twenty-four-year-old Bailey Boswell was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Lincoln to five years in prison, while 51-year-old Aubrey Trail was sentenced to 10 years.

Each pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of stolen property. Prosecutors agreed to drop several other counts in return.

Investigators say Trail and Boswell defrauded two people of thousands of dollars in a scheme to buy and then sell a coin they falsely claimed was valuable.

The two are charged with first-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe. Loofe disappeared Nov. 15, a day after going on a date with Boswell. Loofe’s cut-up remains were found in December in rural Clay County.
