Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell, persons of interest in the Sydney Loofe death investigation, both entered a plea of not guilty to unrelated charges in federal court Thursday.

In an arraignment lasting less than 15 minutes, Boswell pled not guilty to transporting stolen goods across state lines. If convicted, she could face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000.

Aubrey Trail, 51, appeared in federal court at 2:30 p.m. on the same charges as Boswell, and also pled not guilty.

Trail had initially told the judge he wanted to represent himself, but changed his mind and is now being represented by a court-appointed lawyer. In order to qualify for court-appointed counsel, the judge needs to review and approve based on a financial affidavit. Trail had filled out the document and had it in court with him today.

Trail's court-appointed counsel said Trail and Boswell would be tried together.

Boswell, 23, has a preliminary court date set for Feb. 12, 2018.
