LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) --The Nebraska Supreme Court hasupheld the conviction and sentenceof Nikko Jenkins in connection with the murders of four people in the metro.
Jenkins was sentenced to death by a three-judge panel in May, 2017 following his convictions for the 2013 deaths of Juan Uribe-Pena, Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz, Curtis Bradford and Andrea Kruger in three separate attacks.
Kruger was Jenkins' 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 was delayed for years because of concerns about his mental competency.
