He's accused in a streak of murders and investigators said he started killing shortly after he got out of jail. Nikko Jenkins is heading back to court October 1st.
This will be a preliminary hearing and a day that should reveal more evidence against the accused serial killer. Jenkins stands accused of killing four people in a ten day span in August.
In this tangled web of murders, several members of Jenkins family and a few friends face a variety of charges too. Christine Bordeaux now faces a charge for conspiracy to commit robbery against Jorge Cajiga -Ruiz and Juan Uribe-Pena.
The pair were murdered together at Spring Lake Park. Currently, Jenkins accused of pulling trigger.
New information shows Anthony Wells is accused of providing Jenkins the 12 gauge shotgun. Investigators said Jenkins got his hands on the shotgun at the Travelodge. Jenkins and others were at the Travelodge for a party thrown in celebration of Jenkins recent release from prison. It's at the Travelodge investigators believe Wells gave Jenkins the shotgun. But Wells' attorney said differently.
"This preliminary hearing this morning is based entirely on hearsay evidence. Mr. Wells still maintains his innocence," said James Schaefer, lawyer.
Meanwhile, focus shifts back to the case that first put Jenkins is back behind bars. He's accused of making terroristic threats and having a firearm when he's legally not allowed. Is there enough evidence to make Jenkins stand trial for those charges? It's up to prosecutors to convince the judge.
