Man convicted in Omaha home-invasion shooting death
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man has been found guilty of first-degree murder and other counts in the home-invasion shooting death nearly two years ago of a southwest Omaha man.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that a Douglas County jury on Tuesday convicted 31-year-old Leandre Jennings for the Dec. 23, 2016, death of 50-year-old Mike Brinkman at Brinkman’s home.
Prosecutor’s main evidence connecting Jennings to the crime was a piece of toast from a fast-food restaurant left at the scene from which a bite had been taken. Prosecutors say DNA taken from the toast matched Jennings’.
Jennings faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison when he’s sentenced in November.
