A judge on Wednesday has set a February 12 hearing to rule on whether a man accused of four Omaha murders this past summer is competent to stand trial.
27 year old Nikko Jenkins is charged in the killings of Juan Uribe-Pena, Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz, Curtis Bradford and Andrea Kruger. The four were killed within three weeks of Jenkins' release from prison on July 30.
A state Ombudsman's Office report released Tuesday said prison officials should have done more to get treatment for Jenkins.
Jenkins has pleaded not guilty but has said he wants to change his plea to guilty. The judge has said he won't consider a plea change until he determines whether Jenkins in competent for trial.
A psychiatrist working for prosecutors says Jenkins is competent. A defense psychiatrist says Jenkins is not.
