Boswell set for trial on murder charge in Loofe killing

April 2, 2019

Bailey Boswell will stand trial in October on a first-degree murder charge in the slaying of Lincoln clerk Sydney Loofe, according to court documents.

Saline County District Judge Vicki Johnson has scheduled the trial against the 25-year-old to begin Oct. 15.

Boswell and Aubrey Trail have both pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and improper disposal of human remains in the death of the Loofe, a 24-year-old whom authorities say went on a date with Boswell in Wilber Nov. 15, 2017, and then disappeared.

Her remains were found in rural Clay County almost three weeks later.

State prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Boswell and Trail.

Trail also faces a conspiracy to commit murder charge.

There are no indications that Boswell will testify against Trail, who is slated for trial in mid-June.
