Christine Bordeaux, an Omahan accused of illegally buying ammunition that authorities have linked to murder suspect Nikko Jenkins, will remain behind bars.
Bordeaux, 39, appeared in U.S. District Court Monday. U.S. Magistrate Thomas Thalken ordered her held until further proceedings in her case are scheduled.
Bordeaux, previously convicted of unauthorized use of a credit card, faces a federal charge of being a felon in possession of ammunition.
She is accused of illegally buying two boxes of Brenneke Classic Magnum 12-gauge ammunition — commonly known to hunters as “deer slugs” — on Aug. 2. Authorities have linked the ammunition to some of the four slayings in which Jenkins has been charged with first-degree murder.
Jenkins is accused of killing Andrea Kruger on Aug. 21; Curtis Bradford on Aug. 19; and Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz and Juan Uribe-Pena, both on Aug. 11.
