Jenkins' Victim's Family Files Suit

The mother of an Omaha man killed last August has filed a claim against the state for releasing the man who killed him and three other people.

Velita Glasgow, mother of Curtis Bradford, filed a claim on May 7th seeking an unspecified amount of money for negligence in the release of Nikko Jenkins. She is also seeking money for emotional distress and funeral expenses.

Bradford was shot by Jenkins last August, days after Jenkins was released from prison. Jenkins was found guilty in April of killing Bradford and three other people after pleading no contest.

The Douglas County Board is scheduled to take up the claim at a meeting Tuesday. If the claim is not approved after six months, a lawsuit can be filed.
