OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Tinder murder suspect Aubrey Trail appeared in court today to change his plea on one of three charges related to the murder and dismemberment of Sydney Loofe.
Trail's lawyer says he pleaded guilty to a charge of improper disposal of a body. Now that he has, he will be sentenced at a later date for the charge but will go to trial for charges of first degree murder and conspiracy to commit a murder.
The plea is part of Trail's defense strategy:
Judge Johnson says normally at trial they wouldn’t disclose that he just plead guilty to improper disposal of a body but Trail wants it to be told to the jury. It’s part of their defense strategy. @3NewsNowOmaha— Jake Wasikowski (@jakewasikowski) June 17, 2019
