YORK — Nebraska Correctional Center for Women inmate Erica Jenkins, who is serving a life sentence for murder, is asking for her name to be changed.
Jenkins, 31, has petitioned York County District Court, asking for a hearing to be held July 12 to change her legal name from Erica Ashley Jenkins to Elluminati Egoddess Erikka Prestige.
Jenkins is serving a life sentence for the 2013 slaying of Curtis Bradford of Omaha. She is the sister of death-row inmate Nikko Jenkins, who participated in Bradford’s killing and was responsible for three other murders. She also has a decades-long sentence for robbery associated with the killing.
Jenkins is also serving a 20-30-year sentence for the beating of fellow York prison inmate Christine Bordeaux. Jenkins was found guilty by a York County jury of assaulting Bordeaux (her cousin, who testified against the Jenkins siblings in the Bradford case). In that situation, Bordeaux suffered a concussion, broken arm and nose.
