WILBER, Neb. (AP June 18) – As prosecutors get ready for Day Three (Wednesday) of the murder trial of 52-year-old Aubrey Trail, they say he and 25-year-old Bailey Boswell lured a 24-year-old Lincoln woman to her death and were intent on “killing, torture and sex.”
Nebraska Assistant Attorney General Sandra Allen made the remarks Tuesday in her opening statements in the murder trial of 52-year-old Aubrey Trail. Allen said Trail and his girlfriend, 25-year-old Bailey Boswell, used online dating app Tinder to meet Sydney Loofe, then killed her within days and used a hack saw and wire snips to dismember and dispose of her body. Allen told jurors it was a planned abduction and killing.
Trail’s attorney, Joe Murray, told jurors that Trail was “not a particularly nice man” but that Loofe’s killing was an accident that occurred as the three played out a consensual sex fantasy.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for both Trail and Boswell.
On Monday, Trail pleaded guilty to improper disposal of Loofe’s remains.
