A judge denied bond Friday morning for 51-year-old Warren Levering, believed to have been an accessory in the August 21st murder of Andrea Kruger.
Kruger was killed shortly after leaving work at the Déjà Vu Lounge at 178th and Pacific. Her body was found near 168th and Fort streets. Her SUV was found abandoned at 43rd and Charles later that same day.
Nikko Jenkins has been charged with her murder.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine disclosed in court Friday that after Kruger was killed, Levering, who is Jenkins' uncle, ate the food she had bought at McDonald's on her way home early that morning.
Prosecutors said they cannot prove Levering was with Jenkins when Kruger was killed. "The accessory charge is after the fact and that's where the evidence leads us at this point," Kleine said Thursday. "We'll see where the evidence goes and go from there."
Levering later allegedly got a gas can from Jenkins' mother, Lori. Prosecutors said Levering tried to burn the SUV in an effort to destroy evidence.
Levering was arrested Wednesday morning on the Winnebago Indian Reservation in northeast Nebraska. Jenkins is accused of three other murders, all within about a week-and-a-half after being released from prison on July 30th.
