New trial date set for trial in Lincoln woman’s slaying

WILBER, Neb. (AP) — A new trial date has been scheduled in the slaying and dismemberment of a Lincoln woman.

The new date is Sept. 23 in Lexington for 26-year-old Bailey Boswell. Boswell is also charged with conspiracy to commit murder and improper disposal of remains in the November 2017 death of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe.

The trial had been set to begin later this month, but a Saline County judge agreed to a delay because of a family medical emergency within the court. The trial was moved to Dawson County because of pretrial publicity in Saline County.


Boswell’s co-defendant, Aubrey Trail, was found guilty of the same charges in July and faces a possible death penalty. Authorities are also seeking the death penalty for Boswell.

Loofe’s body parts were found in 14 pieces in ditches along a state highway weeks after her disappearance. She was reported missing Nov. 16, 2017 — two days after she had gone on a date with Boswell.
