OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The man charged with killing four Omaha people last summer appeared thinner and agitated at a hearing Wednesday to determine whether he is competent to stand trial.

Nikko Jenkins insisting several times - despite his lawyers’ attempts to quiet him - that the judge hear his complaints that prosecutors had violated his constitutional rights.

Douglas County District Judge Peter Bataillon explained that he could not consider those complaints until he determined whether Jenkins is competent to face first-degree murder and other charges against him.

The 27-year-old Jenkins is charged in the deaths of Juan Uribe-Pena, Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz, Curtis Bradford and Andrea Kruger. Prosecutors say the four were killed in three separate ambushes over a 10-day period in August, just days after Jenkins was released from prison on July 30.
