Bailey Boswell

A judge has decided to move the trial for the woman who is accused of murdering Sydney Loofe, stating that the defendant couldn’t get a fair trial.

Bailey Boswell, 25, who was scheduled for trial in Saline County District Court, Oct. 15-Nov. 1, will head west. Her trial has been moved to Lexington, and has been pushed back to March 2020.

"The court finds that the pervasive publicity makes it impossible for Boswell to receive a fair trial in Saline County, or even Southeast Nebraska," Judge Vicky Johnson wrote.

The judge said Dawson County District Judge James Doyle agreed to make his courtroom available for the trial in Lexington. Boswell’s trial is set to begin there March 16.

Boswell has been charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and improper disposal of human remains.

Her attorney Todd Lancaster requested the change in venue, arguing that media coverage of her co-defendant’s trial made it impossible for her to get a fair trial in Saline County. In July, a jury found Aubrey Trail guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. It took them less than three hours to reach their verdict.
