OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The sister of a man convicted of killing four Omaha residents last year has been given prison time for robbing two of the victims.

Twenty-four-year-old Erica Jenkins was sentenced Thursday to 60 to 100 years in prison on two robbery charges. She will be eligible for parole in 40 years.

Jenkins is accused of luring Juan Uribe-Pena and Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz to an Omaha park in August 2013 and robbing them before Nikko Jenkins killed them.

Erica Jenkins faces charges in connection to the other deaths. A trial is scheduled for next year, and she has been approved to represent herself.

Erica Jenkins also faces charges in the assault of two jail guards. Nikko Jenkins is awaiting sentencing for the August 2013 deaths after being convicted earlier this year.
