A Kenyan-born man Billy Chemirmir suspected of serial killing in the United States has been handed three more capital murder charges.

The native of Eldama Ravine in Baringo County has now been charged with 17 counts of capital murder and two counts of attempted capital murder.

“He has also been linked through medical examiner reports and civil case filings in seven other deaths, bringing the total to 24 deaths in North Texas,” The Dallas Morning News reports.

In movie-like incidents, Chemirmir, 48, is accused of smothering (kill (someone) by covering their nose and mouth so that they suffocate) elderly residents in North Texas before stealing their jewelry, cash and other precious items to sell.

He maintains his innocence and is in jail in lieu of a $11.6 million (KSh11.6 billion) cash bail.

According to the laws of the US, Chemirmir will face the death penalty if found guilty.

Chemirmir’s lawyer, Philip Hayes, says most evidence against his client is circumstantial. He says that the evidence are putting him on the scene of murder, “but doesn’t prove he was the killer.”

โ€œIt seems like every unexplained death they come up with, theyโ€™re pinning on him. If you look at all of it, it doesnโ€™t stand up,โ€ Hayes insists.

The new deaths against Chemirmir are the deaths of Joyce Abramowitz, Doris Wasserman and Margaret White. All the three were killed at the same location- The Tradition-Prestonwood, a luxury senior living complex in Dallas.
