LOCKPORT – Andre L. Jenkins, the man accused of the execution-style killing of two local members of the Kingsmen motorcycle club, was taken to Niagara County Court on Wednesday, but he did not appear before a judge.
Jenkins sat in the courtroom while attorneys huddled with a law clerk for County Judge Sara Sheldon to discuss issues in the case. Defense attorney Dominic Saraceno said he has received a large amount of evidence from the prosecution, but the results of a DNA test on Jenkins, to determine whether he matches DNA found in the car where the two men died, has not yet been received.
Saraceno said he has two weeks to consider whether any discovery material is missing, and he will back at a court appearance scheduled for March 11. He said he doesn’t expect there to be any pretrial hearings in the case, since there was no formal identification procedure for witnesses, and Jenkins made no statements to police.
Paul Maue, 38, of Buffalo, and Daniel “DJ” Szymanski, 31, of Getzville, were both shot in the back of the head while sitting in a car parked behind the Kingsman clubhouse on Oliver Street in North Tonawanda about 3 a.m. Sept. 6. A gun prosecutors believe was used to kill them was found in a field off Route 219 in the Boston area in late September. Jenkins, 36, of Deland, Fla., was arrested Nov. 8 in McIntosh County, Ga.
