(AP) — A psychiatrist who evaluated Nikko Jenkins three years before Jenkins was accused of killing four people in and around Omaha last summer has testified that Jenkins “is a psychopath.”

Dr. Eugene Oliveto, who serves as a psychiatrist for the prison system in Douglas County, testified over the objections of prosecutors Wednesday in a hearing to determine whether Jenkins is competent to stand trial. Oliveto says he took it upon himself to re-evaluate Jenkins on Monday after being subpoenaed by Jenkins’ lawyers.

Oliveto declared that Jenkins is “one of the most dangerous people I have ever evaluated.”

Oliveto is not a forensic psychiatrist and did not testify to Jenkins’ competency to stand trial. But he said his Monday evaluation of Jenkins found him to be schizophrenic, among other things.

    “progressive1″ would argue its a righteous form of expression, and you are either “bias” or “racist” because you commented on this!
