Kenyan man Billy Kipkorir Chemirmir is facing several murder charges in USA.
Chemirmir who comes from Kabunyony village, Eldama Ravine in Baringo County, accused of killing numerous elderly women at assisted facilities in Texas, is facing 18 capital murder charges while civil suits accuse him of murdering eight more women.
So far, authorities have charged Chemirmir, a former healthcare worker, in connection with the deaths of 18 elderly people in Dallas and Collin Counties between 2016 and 2018.
However, he has been accused of killing 24 people from April 2016 through March 2018.
According to authorities, Chemirmir would allegedly dress as a maintenance worker or health care aid to get into homes and kill his victims, whose deaths largely went uninvestigated at the time because they were assumed to have been natural causes due to their advanced ages.
He has pleaded not guilty, and his lawyers said the cases against him are largely circumstantial.
But authorities said they had a mountain of evidence against him, including surveillance video, DNA evidence, and even an eyewitness account of a 91-year-old woman who survived one of his alleged attacks.
Investigators reportedly found jewellery, cell phones, and other belongings of the victims in Chemirmir’s apartment when it was searched in 2018.
