WILBER, Neb. (AP) — A man charged in the killing and dismemberment of a Lincoln woman last year has been found mentally competent to stand trial.
A judge made that ruling Wednesday regarding 52-year-old Aubrey Trail, who has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and unlawful disposal of human remains.
Trail and 24-year-old Bailey Boswell are accused of killing 24-year-old Sydney Loofe on Nov. 15, 2017, dismembering her body and dumping the remains in rural Clay County. A massive search was launched for Loofe, who was reported missing by her family. Her remains weren’t found until Dec. 4.
Trail’s trial is scheduled to begin June 17. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty for both Trail and Boswell.
