Nebraska woman convicted in 2017 Tinder date murder

Nebraska woman was found guilty Wednesday in the death of another woman who prosecutors said was lured to her death through a Tinder date. 

Bailey Boswell, 26, was convicted of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and improper disposal of human skeletal remains in the Nov. 15, 2017, slaying of Sydney Loofe.

Jurors took less than four hours to reach a verdict, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Prosecutors said Boswell arranged a date with Loofe, a Lincoln resident, through the Tinder dating app. Defense lawyers argued Boswell was forced to go along with the killing by her boyfriend, Aubrey Trail. 

Investigators said Loofe's cellphone went dead 24 minutes after arriving in the apartment shared by Boswell and Trail, and that she probably was killed quickly. 

Prosecutors said Trail admitted to strangling Loofe with an extension cord. 

He was found guilty for his role in the killing last year and faces the death penalty. Boswell could be the first woman to be sent to death row in Nebraska when she's sentenced.
