White male shot and killed at house party in Lincoln NE. Negro arrested.




Suspect in death of Lincoln Special Olympian is a felon with family ties to Nikko Jenkins

Anthony Wells could have been in jail.
In 2014, prosecutors had tried the convicted felon on charges that he provided his cousin, Nikko Jenkins, with the shotgun that Jenkins used to kill three of his four victims during an August 2013 murder spree in Omaha. However, a judge acquitted Wells after a trial.

UPDATE: Arrest Warrant Issued for Murder


UPDATE: Friends and neighbors of 25-year-old Joshua Hartwig are still trying to process the tragedy that took place early Sunday morning.

"You know, he can't be replaced," said neighbor Melvin Wells. "It's just kind of hard to hear that stuff happens to good people."

Hartwig was fatally shot outside an apartment building near 18th and Cornhusker, around 1:30 Sunday morning. We spoke with his friends and neighbors, who described the moments after shots were fired.

"I didn't know how close it was," said Alysha Anderson. "It sounded like it was right outside the building."

Anderson and her friend Stephanie Riley both say their heart sank when they heard the shots.

Jury finds Omaha man guilty of Hartwig murder



A Lancaster County jury found an Omaha man guilty on Friday of first-degree murder for shooting into a crowd and killing 25-year-old Special Olympian Joshua Hartwig just outside his dad's Lincoln apartment a year ago.

Anthony Lamont Wells put his head down as the jury walked out. Women stifled cries. Sheriff's deputies stood at every door and in the hallway.

Defense attorney Kelly Breen told the Wells family in the courtroom that he was sorry, and there will be an appeal.

OMAHA, Neb. —
An Omaha family has been in the news, in the courts and in jail, but take a look at their lists of felonies and you will see why.
The Jenkins family has seven convicted felons in two generations with two more facing felony charges.


Nikko Jenkins is charged in four different Omaha homicides -- Andrea Kruger, Curtis Bradford, Jorge Cajiga Ruiz and Juan Uribe Pena.
Jenkins’ uncle, 51-year-old Warren Levering, is a felon. He was just released from an Oklahoma prison and has done time in Nebraska, too. Investigators said he fathered seven children with six different women in five states.
This week, prosecutors charged him as an accessory in the murder of Kruger, 33. Authorities said Levering helped Nikko get rid of Kruger’s car and tried to set it on fire near 43rd and Charles streets. Prosecutors said Levering got the gas can from his sister’s house.
Nikko Jenkins’ mother, Lori Jenkins, just bonded out of jail this week on an unrelated felony terroristic threats charge.
In addition to Levering, Lori has two other brothers who are both convicted felons. One is currently on parole.

Investigators said Lori Jenkins had six children with David Magee but never married him. Magee died in 2009. He was a felon convicted of terroristic threats.
Of their six children, four have been arrested in the past month. Erica Jenkins, 23, is a convicted felon now facing murder and weapon charges in Bradford’s murder.
On Friday, she told a judge she can’t be a killer because she is three months pregnant. Investigators said she has a 7-year-old son who is in child protective custody.
Erica’s younger sister, 18-year-old Lori “Lolo” Sayles, is charged in connection to Bradford’s murder as well. Prosecutors said she got rid of the murder weapon.
The third sister, 25-year-old Melonie Jenkins, is also a convicted felon. She bailed out of jail last week on terroristic threats charges. Investigators said she had three children under the age of 7 and are all in child protective custody.
As for Nikko Jennkins, he was just released from prison before prosecutors said he shot and killed four people. The 27-year-old is legally married to 22-year-old Chalonda Jenkins, who served time in prison. She told KETV NewsWatch 7 she is pregnant with Nikko’s child.
Nikko’s other two sisters live out of state. Neither are in much contact with their family members.
Investigators said Jimmy Levering was a cousin to Warren Levering and the rest of the Jenkins family. He died two years ago. He was charged with murder in 2006, but the charge was dropped after prosecutors said witnesses backed out.

Who is Nikko Jenkins' father? David A. Magee (father) and Lori Jenkins (mother) had six children, even though they never officiated their marriage. The Leverings had a good reputation throughout Omaha, Nebraska, for over 100 years. Levi Levering's influence (the town's tribal leader) went as far as Washington DC. However, things fell apart when the clan recorded criminal acts like child neglect, drug abuse, theft, and murder. Therefore, Nikko's parents were not surprised when he slaughtered four people in 2013.

Generations of crime: Did the newspaper miss a chance to tell a family's deeper story?​

  • Dec 18, 2022

Sophia Walsh and Zach Wendling
After Nikko Jenkins set out on a murder spree that took the lives of four Nebraskans in August 2013, reporters at the Omaha World-Herald learned something unsettling about his family.
Many of his relatives — past and current — had run-ins with the cops. At least 38, it turned out, had been convicted of 633 crimes in Omaha between 1979 and 2013, according to the reporting.
That finding was reported in a package of stories that explored generations of crime and violence. This was more poignant because it marked an extraordinary fall from grace that began with a Native American ancestor, Levi Levering, who had been a distinguished tribal leader. He was the first Native American commissioner to the Presbyterian General Assembly in 1911 and successfully lobbied Congress in 1920 to protect tribal members’ rights to their land.

“A name that was respected in Nebraska 100 years ago has become synonymous with lawlessness as generations of Leverings succumbed to alcohol, drugs and violence,” The World-Herald reported.

But while accurate in their details, the stories missed the bigger picture, including social and racial factors that would further explain the family’s trajectory, according to critics. Where the newspaper could have used the family’s history to examine the root causes of the criminality, exploring the forces that warped some of Levering’s descendants, the stories instead largely just recounted their misdoings, complete with a photo array of police-style mugshots.
Crystal Edwards, an adjunct professor in sociology at the University of Nebraska Omaha, said the reporting posed Omaha as a victim of the Levering family, though she said Omaha also let the Levering family — and generally its Black and Indigenous communities — down. The family includes members of both communities.

“By pointing out that some members of this family know better and criminality is a choice, the analysis is shifted away from policies that create negative social conditions, which play a role in defining and creating crime,” Edwards said after reviewing the coverage.

Edwards said the coverage began with a model minority group member — Levi Levering — and then described Nikko Jenkins, Levering’s great-great grandson, as a natural result of a series of bad choices, including drugs and alcohol, child neglect and criminal behavior.

“While that may be true, it is also part of a long line of bad policy choices, abuse of native people, genocidal education via mission schools, misappropriation of resources by state and federal governments, racially biased lending practices and misuse of child welfare systems against Indigenous people,” Edwards said. “The history of abuse of native people in these systems is rampant and genocidal.”

None of these factors was examined. Instead, the package dwelled on the crimes.
A couple of family members were convicted in connection with Jenkins’ murders, and many family members had a prior criminal history. The World-Herald devoted five articles in December 2013 to the family, which the then-Executive Editor Mike Reilly described as investigating a small circle of violence in Omaha.

Published on two Sundays and one Monday between Dec. 15 and 22, 2013, the stories detailed several generations of criminal history in the family and highlighted two family members who successfully escaped the circumstances.
The series opened with a family tree — titled the “Roots of a Crime Family” — detailing four generations of the family’s criminal history beginning with Levi Levering’s son: Lincoln Levering.

The package made clear that the family had problems, according to Tim Anderson, a former World-Herald editor and retired journalism professor from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While reporting mentioned poverty, addiction and other issues, however, the story, focused on crime, included little discussion of race beyond Levi Levering.
“I find that kind of remarkable, and I can’t speculate as to why there’s no mention, like what was behind that, but there are certainly cues in the stories that would tell any reader of the Omaha World-Herald that this story is about race,” Anderson said, noting mentions of North Omaha.

Beyond the reference to Levi Levering, the paper did little to examine his background or the marks he left. Instead, it just cast a negative light on the community, critics said.

“That timeline is just awful,” Kevin Abourezk, managing editor for Indianz.com, said in an email. “I can’t imagine the World-Herald doing this for any non-Native murderers in this state. I don’t know why they thought it was OK to do here, to connect a good man to generations of broken people and criminals.”

Reilly, who oversaw a team of editors and reporters on the project, said he was proud of the work and continues to be proud of it. To him, the story was never primarily about race but about crime and violence and how it can be inbred.
“You want to write a report honestly about crime,” Reilly said. “You don’t want to gloss over realities, difficult realities, because you’re trying to tread lightly on a delicate subject like race.”

Reilly said he likely would not include a collection of mugshots that ran online if he were doing a similar story today.
The stories touched on how poverty, addiction, alcohol abuse and child neglect scarred the family, but they didn’t mention race as one of those factors. And they didn’t discuss systemic factors that can drive criminal activity.
“I would try to weave into a story that looks at all of the structures, all of the institutions that really contributed,” said Carla Kimbrough, a former UNL journalism professor.
Roseann Moring, one of the reporters, and another staffer said the reporting team wanted to discuss how racial disparities impacted the family, though there was an unclear path forward without other articles to base their work off.

“To me, this was a story about how racism and prejudice impacted the family as much as it was about the family itself. However, at the time it felt like it would be impossible to make a more explicit connection,” Moring said in an email. “In retrospect what was obvious to me could/should have been more explicitly laid out to readers.”

1 page at Penn State Museum, which teaches classes on Native American tribes:
Student information card of Levi Levering, a member of the Omaha Nation, who entered the school on August 19, 1882 and departed July 2, 1891. The information card indicates that Levering graduated in 1890, studied shoe making, married Vena Bartlett, and was living in Beggs, Oklahoma in 1913.

Mr. Levering was a pure blood Omaha Indian.
"While at Fort Hall he married Miss Vena Bartlett, of the Bannock tribe and returned to the Omaha reservation, where he has been conducting a store for five years.
"Mr. Levering has a beautiful home near his place of business which is furnished with good taste and is a model house in every particular. "Last December Mrs. Levering died of typhoid fever. "Mr. Levering has been superintendent of the Blackbird Hills (Indian church) Sunday school three years, and an elder for two years. He represented the church at the recent Omaha Presbytery and his election as commissioner to the General Assembly followed."

I'm ending this crime family story with Generational Family Curse, it was all the culmination of destruction caused by miscegenation, superstition & substances. Nowhere can I find who the woman was who Levi Levering's family member had first mixed his race with, most likely black female.

What is labeled a generational curse is primarily based on the teaching of those within deliverance ministries who believe that certain people can "inherit" misfortune. They believe some people receive, from their ancestors, tendencies and weaknesses toward specific types or groups of sins.

The concept of a generational curse comes from the second of God's holy Ten Commandments.

You shall not make for yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath . . .
You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me . . . (Exodus 20:4 - 6, HBFV, see also Exodus 34:6 - 7, Numbers 14:7 - 19 and Deuteronomy 5:8 - 11).

Some see such a generational "curse" as being caused by an evil spirit who has the power to harass the descendants of a particular person who is prone to commit certain sins. Still others see it as being a general "spiritual inheritance" in nature. Such curses are not thought to have a connection with heredity-based problems like a tendency to abuse alcohol.

Those who are under a generational curse, it is argued, are prone to committing certain types of sinful behavior. Solutions to this type of penalty include having someone involved in a deliverance ministry "discern" the exact curse a person possesses. With this information the individual can then specifically renounce the curses against them. If it is believed that the cause is an actual evil spirit, the deliverance ministry will try to "cast it out."

What the last part of the second commandments means is that our Creator made us in such a fashion that parents who disobey him are not always punished themselves. Sometimes, the full results of their sin is demonstrated in the next four generations. However, we should always remember that God deals with individuals as well as with nations and societies, the fact of which He reminds us of through Ezekiel (Ezekiel 18:14 - 17).

It is also important to note that the "generational curse" or punishment that comes with breaking the second commandment is qualified with "of those who hate me." This means if the second, third or fourth generation repents and turns to God with their heart, he may change his mind and forestall any punishment.

Two generations to go.

Kruger family responds to details in woman's slaying​


Updated: 7:14 PM CDT Oct 3, 2013


OMAHA, Neb. —
Andrea Kruger's family heard for the first time Tuesday the details surrounding her death, and her brother says it was the hardest day for him since his sister's death.
Kruger's brother, Ryan Roberts, her husband, parents and close friends sat inside the courtroom, hearing exact details on how the 33-year-old mother of three was carjacked, shot to death and left in the street in August.

"Hearing all that, I guess you can't prepare for that. Sitting there, the anger, the heartache, and then just feeling sorry for those individuals," Roberts said.
Investigators testified Erica Jenkins was driving her cousin, Christine Bordeaux, brother, Nikko Jenkins, and uncle, Warren Levering, and that they were looking for a car to steal when they spotted Kruger at a McDonald's drive-through.
-- Read: Jenkins claims murders were sacrifices to appease gods
Moments later, investigators testified Nikko Jenkins, 26, and Levering rushed Kruger's car and Nikko shot Kruger four times near 168th and Fort streets.
But those details weren't the toughest thing for Roberts to hear.

"The lack of caring -- hearing that the sister, what Miss Bordeaux had stated, that the sister was arguing with her brother after he killed her. 'Why didn't you throw her in the ditch?' That was their mindset, they didn't have any compassion at all. That was the only thing she was concerned about: 'Why didn't you throw her in the ditch?'" Roberts said.
Although the details were difficult for Roberts, but he said he doesn’t believe them all. He said he knows his little sister fought back rather than pleading for her life as Nikko told investigators.
“Nikko probably had to shoot and defend himself after they got into their altercation,” he said.
Sitting through Kruger's accused killers' hearings is something Roberts said he feels he has to do.
"I wasn't there the night to protect my sister, and I feel I owe it to her to stand there and make sure that they are doing everything they can to protect her, and if they're not, I'm at least able to voice my opinion in a reasonable amount of time to make sure something gets done," Roberts said.
For now, Roberts said he is concentrated on Nikko Jenkins.
"I did the best I could to make as much eye contact with him as I could, hoping maybe he could see my sister in me and hoping that wears on him a little bit," Roberts said.
The family is also staying focused on Kruger’s three kids, hoping her very young daughters will somehow remember their mother.
“That's what's weighing on our hearts the most, is that they won't be able to remember how great their mother truly was to them. That's what's really sad, is that Nikko took that away from those two girls, and they'll never get to know their mother and how great of a woman she truly was,” Roberts said.
Kruger's children are getting help through Ted E. Bear Hollow.
Nikko Jenkins is held on no bond as he awaits trial. Erica Jenkins went before a judge Thursday charged with two counts of conspiracy for her roles in Kruger’s murder and another in Spring Lake Park where police say Nikko killed two other men.
Warren Levering also went before a judge Thursday on first-degree murder and weapons charges in Kruger’s death. He was denied bond.
