Accused murderer Nikko Jenkins wants to change his plea, again

On Tuesday, accused serial murderer Nikko Jenkins was in a Douglas County courtroom and wanted to plead no contest to four murders in Omaha last August.

The judge refused because prosecutors are seeking the death penalty, but stated he would accept a guilty plea.

On Friday, Jenkins filed paperwork pleading guilty to the four murders.

The judge will decide next week whether to accept or deny the request.

Jenkins, who is acting as his own attorney, has caused quite a commotion in the courtroom in recent weeks. He has been reprimanded by the judge several times for outbreaks and remarks not related to the case.

When Jenkins was arrested he pleaded not guilty. He later wanted to change that to guilty and then demanded to be released from jail claiming violation of his constitutional rights.
