A judge has scheduled a plea hearing for accused serial killer Nikko Jenkins. It will be Wednesday at 10 a.m.

This comes after 27-year-old Jenkins filed paperwork Friday in Douglas County District Court to change his plea to guilty on all felony counts.

He is serving as his own attorney and allegedly murdered Juan Uribe-Pena, Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz, Curtis Bradford, and Andrea Kruger in Omaha last August.

He had plead not guilty, claiming he didn't receive proper mental health treatment while previously in prison. In February, Judge Peter Bataillon ruled that Jenkins was mentally competent to stand trial on the four counts of murder.

Last week, Jenkins tried to plead no contest to the charges, but Judge Bataillon said he wouldn't accept the pleas because of the severity of the cases.

A trial date had been set for July 28th.
