One of Aubrey Trail’s attorneys, Ben Murray, said in a court motion that one of his attorneys has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Murray also made the argument that the pandemic has prevented out-of-state witnesses from traveling to Nebraska for Trail’s hearing. The hearing was supposed to begin next week.
Last year, Trail was tried and found guilty for first-degree murder and conspiracy in the Nov. 2017 death and dismemberment of 24-year-old Lincoln resident, Sydney Loofe.
