The Nebraska Supreme Court has dismissed the request that the convicted murderer Aubrey Trail be his lawyer.
Convicted and sentenced to death for killing and dismantling Lincoln clerk Sydney Roof in 2017, Trail recently dismissed a court-appointed lawyer and handled his own legal affairs instead. Was appointed to do.
He reached a “deadlock” with his lawyer on how to handle the legally required appeal of his death sentence, and said he had “common sense” to work as his own lawyer.
In an email from prison to World Herald, Trail said his lawyer opposed his desire to abandon his automatic appeal and set an execution date within a year.
“I don’t want to appeal, the court sentenced me to death and executed the sentence,” he wrote.

Last week, the Nebraska Supreme Court dismissed his motion to serve as his own lawyer for failing to notify the Nebraska Attorney General’s office of his request.
Defendant lawyers appointed in his court, Ben and Joe Murray of Hebron, are preparing a written debate against the trail’s death sentence. The Attorney General’s office also has the opportunity to submit a discussion. The law requires the Supreme Court to speed up discussion decisions in preference to other civil and criminal cases.
