WILBER, Nebraska (KTIV) – A day after a jury found Aubrey Trail guilty of first-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe, a panel of judges will determine whether he deserves the death penalty.

This is according to TV station KSNB. 

On Thursday Trail waived his right to a jury hearing to see if there are aggravating circumstances involved in the crime.

Instead, he is electing to send the case to a three-judge panel for a death penalty hearing.

Trail and his girlfriend Bailey Boswell were charged with first-degree murder in Loofe’s death.

Loofe’s body parts were found in ditches along a state highway weeks after her November 2017 disappearance.

Boswell is awaiting trial.
