(AP) — Prosecutors have dropped a federal charge against an Omaha woman accused of supplying ammunition to a man suspected of killing several people.

It’s unclear why an acting U.S. attorney dismissed the charge against 39-year-old Christine Bordeaux. A judge signed the order Friday.

Bordeaux was accused of illegally buying two boxes of Brenneke Classic Magnum 12-gauge ammunition in early August. Authorities have linked the ammunition to several killings in the Omaha area. Nikko Jenkins faces four counts of first-degree murder in the slayings.

The station reports that Bordeaux still faces charges of terroristic threats and shoplifting. Court records do not indicate if she has an attorney.
