Bailey Boswell

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The murder trial of a woman accused in the slaying and dismemberment of a Lincoln woman has been moved out of Saline County.

The first-degree murder trial of 25-year-old Bailey Boswell has been moved more than 170 miles west to Lexington in Dawson County. The start of the trial has also been moved from Oct. 15 to March.

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.

Boswell's co-defendant, 52-year-old Aubrey Trail, was found guilty of the same charges last month 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 — two days after she had gone on a date with Boswell.
