A 24-year-old woman has lost her life as a result of what the accused is calling a "Tinder date gone wrong"..
Trail has previous convictions for theft and writing worthless checks in Kansas.
Aubrey Trail, 51, and Bailey Boswell, 23, appeared in Saline County Court on Tuesday to face charges of first-degree murder and the improper disposal of human skeletal remains in the killing of 24-year-old Loofe. She had told family members that she was planning on meeting someone she had "met online" and had reportedly spent the night with Boswell, who she had met on Tinder.
Loofe met her date, a woman named Bailey Boswell, on Tinder - a popular dating app - and soon Boswell would be picking up Loofe at home, according to a criminal complaint.
Her body was discovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on December 5, and meanwhile Boswell and Trail are accused of handling stolen goods.
He and Boswell have been charged with first-degree murder.
In May, Boswell pleaded guilty in an unrelated gold coin scheme in Kansas.
Since he and Boswell were arrested weeks after Loofe's disappearance, Trail has told several news outlets that her death was accidental.
Police say the last time Loofe's phone was used was near a cellphone tower near Wilber in Saline County at about 8:31 p.m. on the 15th.
Loofe was last seen on alive on November 15, and her remains were discovered on December 4.
"It wasn't supposed to go to the extreme it went, of course not", he told the paper. "It wasn't meant that she was to die".
Judge Bauer set the next hearings for both Trail and Boswell for June 19, when both will tell the court whether they want a preliminary hearing on the felony charges.
The court documents state that Trail strangled Loofe with an extension chord.
Sydney Loofe's body was found dumped and in pieces in a field near the town of Edgar, Nebraska.
Prosecutors in the case include Saline County Attorney Tad Eickmann and special appointed prosecutors from the Nebraska Attorney General's Office, Michael Guinan and Corey O'Brien.
'A life for a life - that's the rules in my world. "I should be put to death". That happened hours before Loofe was seen leaving her job at Menards on November 15. The arrest affidavit for both Trail and Boswell say that their landlord who lives upstairs reported a strong bleach odor coming from the basement on November 16 and into November 17.
The arrest affidavit for Boswell says that she and Loofe had sent each other about 140 messages.
