LINCOLN, Neb. – An upcoming trial for Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell, both persons of interest in the death and disappearance of Sydney Loofe, was continued until May on Tuesday morning.
Trail and Boswell both face charges of interstate transportation of stolen property. The duo is accused of scamming a couple out of more than $400,000, claiming they would use the money to sell a gold coin for a large profit.
On Tuesday morning in a meeting with Magistrate Judge Cheryl Zwart, Boswell’s attorney moved to continue the trial, which was scheduled for March 26, to provide additional time to review discovery and prepare for trial, according to court documents.
According to the records, counsel for Trail “strenuously opposed the continuance.”
However, the motion was granted, and the trial was pushed back until May 14 at 9 a.m.
Judge Zwart has not yet made a decision on a plea from Trail last week asking he be allowed to represent himself in the case. Trail said he has not had adequate time to prepare for trial with his attorney since he was being held in federal prison in Kansas.
Trail is currently being held at Saline County Jail.
