OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ A judge has ordered state psychiatric hospital officials to court next week to explain why the Lincoln hospital can't house and treat a man convicted of killing four Omaha people last summer.

Douglas County District Judge Peter Bataillon issued the order during a hearing Thursday - more than two weeks after he ordered Nikko Jenkins to the state's psychiatric hospital in Lincoln for treatment. But in a letter sent to the judge last week, the Lincoln Regional Center said it doesn't have adequate security or a bed for Jenkins.

Jenkins was convicted earlier this year of four counts of first-degree murder but was declared incompetent to face the sentencing portion of his case.
