LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court has upheld the robbery convictions and prison sentence for the sister of Nikko Jenkins, who was convicted of killing four Omaha residents in 2013.

Erica Jenkins had appealed her convictions for her role in luring Juan Uribe-Pena and Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz to an Omaha park in August 2013 and robbing them before Nikko Jenkins killed them. She was sentenced to 60 to 100 years for the two robbery counts.

The high court on Friday said it found no merit to any of Erica Jenkins’ arguments, including that prosecutors’ acquisition of her cellphone records amounted to an unconstitutional search.

Erica Jenkins is also serving a life sentence for helping her brother kill another of his four victims, Curtis Bradford.
