Self-Defense Benefit Honoring Omaha Murder Victim

OMAHA -- Dozens of women and children learned ways to defend themselves in a class held to honor an Omaha woman who was shot to death in august. Family, friends and strangers attended the self-defense benefit on Saturday. The two-hour class was held as a fundraiser for the family of Andrea Kruger, who was killed on her way home from work. Authorities have charged 26-year-old Nikko Jenkins with her murder and his uncle, 51-year-old Warren Levering, as an accessory in her death. Kruger's sister-in-law, Lori Roberts, says the benefit was designed to empower women. Organizers from Life Time Fitness say demand was so great that they plan to start a weekly adult self-defense class - the event raised a few thousand dollars for the Kruger family.
