Nikko Jenkins Case

According to the Nebraska Department of Correction Services, Nikko Jenkins is a convicted spree killer who was sentenced to death in 2014 for four killings in Omaha. According to the Death Penalty Information Center, there has been ongoing discussion among mental health professionals who have assessed Jenkins as to whether he is mentally ill or not since his conviction.

According to the Associated Press, Nikko Jenkins was sentenced to ten years in jail at the age of 15 for two armed carjackings.

According to court papers, he shot and killed Juan Uribe-Pena and Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz just eleven days after his release in 2013, after enticing them with the aid of his cousin and sister who claimed to conduct sex acts with the men as prostitutes. Both males had their wallets taken and were shot in the head with shotguns loaded with deer slugs.

In elementary school, Nikko Jenkins began to display aggressive tendencies and signs of mental illness. Jenkins carried a loaded.25 caliber pistol to school when he was seven years old. He’d assaulted someone with a knife when he was 13 years old. He was convicted of two armed carjackings at the age of 15 and served time in prison until his release in 2013, when he began on a killing rampage.

Since he was a child, Nikko Jenkins claims to have heard whispers from Apophis, an Egyptian snake god. He informed his now ex-wife, Chalonda Jenkins, that the deity sends him commands and that he’s known the Egyptian snake god since he was a youngster. “If you follow my instructions, I’ll make sure you’re safe,” the voice continued.

Detailed court papers detail the findings of different doctors and psychologists after analyzing Nikko Jenkins’ mental state over the course of decades. Jenkins was diagnosed with “psychosis not otherwise specified” and bipolar illness by a doctor in 2009.

A doctor who examined Nikkko Jenkins several times over the years diagnosed him with schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and schizoaffective disorder. He sliced his eye and neck with a pointed tile taken from the wall in March 2019. He tried to slit his own throat once more. Jenkins’ attempts at suicide in jail, according to one attorney, must be in the double tens at this time.

Psychiatrist Y. Scott Moore says Jenkins’ symptoms were all made up from the start, dating back to childhood. According to court records, a test found results indicative of fabricating a mental condition. The state’s stock of lethal injection medications expired in 2018, and no plans to replace them have been announced.
