LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska lawmakers have approved a committee to investigate the state's handling of Nikko Jenkins, who is accused of killing four people in the Omaha area after his release from prison.    

Senators adopted a resolution Friday that would create a special committee to look at the circumstances of the case, and review the Department of Correctional Services' rehabilitative and mental health programs. Jenkins was allowed to leave without supervision, despite making threats of violence and begging officials to commit him to a mental health institution.
