LINCOLN — Gov. Dave Heineman, a supporter of capital punishment, said Thursday that prosecutors are correct in seeking the death penalty for Nikko Jenkins, who is charged in connection with four recent slayings in Omaha.
The Republican governor, in a letter to Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine, said he fully supports Kleine's decision to seek the death penalty for the “senseless murders.”
