Experts have provided to a judge diverging viewpoints on whether a man convicted of killing four people in Omaha is mentally ill or faking it.

Judge Peter Bataillon had ordered mental tests for 27-year-old Nikko Jenkins to determine whether Jenkins would be competent to understand court proceedings next month on his possible death sentence.

The judge didn't making a ruling on Thursday.

 Jenkins is awaiting sentencing for the August 2013 deaths of Curtis Bradford, Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz, Juan Uribe-Pena and Andrea Kruger.
