Jurors took less than four hours to find Bailey Boswell, 26, guilty of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and improper disposal of human remains in the 2017 murder of Sydney Loofe, 24 , from Lincoln, the Omaha World-Herald reported.
Boswell’s defense had claimed she was forced by her boyfriend to accept murder and dismemberment, but state prosecutors said Boswell acted in tandem with 54-year-old Aubrey Trail to meet and kill Loofe.
Boswell could become the first woman sentenced to death in Nebraska when she is sentenced at a later date. Trail was convicted last year and also faces the death penalty.
Investigators say Boswell set up a date with Loofe, a Lincoln store worker, through the dating app Tinder for November 15, 2017 – the same day officials say Loofe was killed. Loofe was reported missing by her family and a massive search has been launched. His remains were not found until December 4, when his dismembered body was found stuffed in garbage bags that had been dumped in a field near Edgar, about 90 miles southwest of Lincoln.
