Both persons of interest in  the Sydney Loofe death investigation  separately 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, from Kansas to Beatrice. 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.

Boswell and Trail were indicted on the federal charges Monday.

Trail had initially told the judge he wanted to represent himself, but changed his mind and is now being represented by Korey Reiman , a private attorney in Lincoln. 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.

Reiman said Trail still has an active warrant in Saline County, making him ineligible for a bond hearing. Reiman said he could file paperwork to get a hearing on the warrant, which could lead to Trail being able to bond out of jail. 

Boswell, 23, has a preliminary court date set for Feb. 12, 2018, and has been appointed a federal public defender.
