A Nebraska couple was charged Monday with dismembering and murder of a 24-year-old woman found on the Mushrooms.

Aubrey Trail, 51, and Bailey Boswell, 23, were charged in a 24-year-old Sydney Loofe death, KMTV reported. The two appeared in Saline County court Tuesday, where Rail, said he planned on representing himself, and Boswell asked for a lawyer. Boswell will be represented by the Nebraska Commission on Public Advocacy.

The authorities said that Loofe aligned with Boswell on Tinder, a dating app, and went on a date Nov. 14, 2017. She was planning a second date for the following night.

The plaintiffs claim that Aubrey Trail, told investigators he strangled Sydney Loofe, 24, with an extension cord.

Loofe’s mother reported her missing on Nov. 16, and in December, her body was found stuffed in garbage bags that had been dumped in a field near Edgar, a city about 90 miles southwest of Lincoln.

The plaintiffs claim Trail, told investigators he strangled Loofe with an extension cord. Researchers believe Boswell, who lived at the Trail, helped him dismember Loofe and dispose of her remains.

Boswell and Trail were soon considered as suspects in the case, and were arrested in Missouri in November on unrelated charges. They are held in the Saline County jail since then.

Trail has told news outlets that Loofe’s death was accidental, but did not elaborate. The researchers said Trail and Boswell were captured on video at a Home Depot in Lincoln on Nov. 15 the buy of the tools used to dismember Loofe, hours before her death, and while they are still at work.

The authorities have not suggested a motive for the murder. The Nebraska Attorney General’s office, which is prosecuting the case, said that it was considering seeking the death penalty.
