Man Charged in Hudson Slayings Pleads Not Guilty

 
A co-defendant charged in the slayings and robbery of a Hudson couple has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness. 
 
Public defender Tina Olson entered not guilty pleas last week on behalf of her client, 20-year-old Joseph Jude Jenkins of Arapahoe. Jenkins faces 11 charges, including four counts of first-degree murder. 
 
In November of last year, Jenkins allegedly stabbed 42-year-old Eric Likes and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Elva Quiver to death. 
 
Jenkins is one of five co-defendants charged in the slayings. 
 
The judge ordered Jenkins to undergo an examination at the Wyoming state hospital in Evanston.
