Federal charge dismissed for Nikko Jenkins associate

A federal judge has dismissed a charge against an associate of Nikko Jenkins, who is accused of killing four people in a spree in August.

Magistrate Judge Thomas D. Thalken on Friday dismissed the charge of felon in possession of ammunition against Christine Bordeaux, 39.

Bordeaux still faces state charges in Douglas County, including terroristic threats and shoplifting.

The U.S. Attorney's Office on Tuesday declined to say why the federal charge against Bordeaux was dismissed.

Bordeaux had been accused of illegally buying two boxes of Brenneke Classic Magnum 12-gauge ammunition — commonly known to hunters as “deer slugs” — on Aug. 2.

Jenkins, 26, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder: the slayings of Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz and Juan Uribe-Pena, whose bodies were found Aug. 11 at Spring Lake Park; the Aug. 19 shooting death of Curtis Bradford; and the Aug. 21 shooting death of Andrea Kruger as she pulled her sport utility vehicle up to the intersection at 168th and Fort Streets.
