Man awaiting sentencing says he's ready to be executed

A Nebraska man awaiting sentencing for killing and dismembering a 24-year-old Lincoln woman says he's ready to be executed.

Aubrey Trail told the Omaha World-Herald in an email that if he's sentenced to death he'll file a lawsuit to try to force the state to carry out the sentence in a timely fashion.

Trail and his girlfriend, 26-year-old Bailey Boswell, were both charged in the 2017 slaying of Sydney Loofe.

Boswell is awaiting trial.

Trail also is trying to remove one of the judges appointed to a three-judge panel that will determine whether Trail's crime qualifies for the death penalty.
