Nikko Jenkins Faces Sentencing Today

Stay posted about how this plays out today. 

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Convicted spree killer Nikko Jenkins will be back in court on Tuesday.

A three-judge panel will decide if Jenkins will get the death penalty.

The court has tentatively set his sentencing date to take place May 30th.

Last Friday the three-judge panel met to go over testimony from November hearings and briefs filed by attorneys.

Jenkins was convicted of four counts of first-degree murder for the August 2013 shooting deaths in and around Omaha of Juan Uribe-Pena, Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz, Curtis Bradford and Andrea Kruger in three separate attacks.

Kruger was his final victim. Prosecutors say Jenkins pulled Kruger from her car, shot her four times in the street and then stole her vehicle.

Jenkins pleaded no contest in 2014, but his sentencing has been delayed for years because of concerns about his mental competency.
