Aubrey Trail Ruled Competent for Trial

WILBER – A man charged in the killing and dismemberment of a Lincoln woman last year has been found mentally competent to stand trial.

A Judge ruled Wednesday that 52-year-old Aubrey Trail, who has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and unlawful disposal of human remains, is mentally competent to withstand trial.

Trail and 24-year-old Bailey Boswell are accused of killing 24-year-old Sydney Loofe, dismembering her body, and dumping the remains in rural Clay County last November.

Trail’s trial is scheduled to begin June 17th. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty for both Trail and Boswell.
