On Monday, the Nebraska Attorney General's office announced they're charging Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell with first degree murder of Sydney Loofe.

Trail and Boswell are also being charged with improper disposal of human skeletal remains.

Charges were filed in Saline County. The two will appear via video conference at 11:00 a.m. in the Saline County Court.

This comes after months of them being identified as persons of interest by investigators.

Law enforcement declared Sydney missing in November.

The 24–year–old was last heard from on Nov. 15 through Snapchat, when she said she was ready for a date.

After three weeks of searching, law enforcement said they found Sydney's body near Clay Center, which is about 90 miles southwest of Lincoln.

Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell were detained in Missouri's Taney County Jail on unrelated warrants.  Since they were arrested, Trail and Boswell had only been charged with fraud in an unrelated case.

Trail has said he's accountable in Sydney's death but has long insisted Boswell had no involvement in it.

"Bailey was in a different room," Trail said over the phone in February.  "What she'd done was already done.  She had nothing to do with Sydney's death.  She was not there when it occurred."

Both Trail and Boswell are scheduled to appear Saline County Court Tuesday at 11 a.m.

Channel 8 Eyewitness News will be there to cover it.
