A Kenyan serial killer facing trial in the United States (US) is staring at the possibility of getting the death penalty for allegedly killing more than 22 grandmothers at care homes for the elderly.

Billy Chemirmir, 47, was born and raised in Baringo and moved to seek greener pastures in the US in the 1990s after his elder sister secured him a visa, here, he is said to have commited the capital murder of 14 senior citizens and another eight families have separately accused him of killing their grandmothers in care homesby suffocating them.

The serial killer who married an American woman and became an American citizen through naturalisation is locked up at the Dallas County jail while awaiting ruling after failing to raise a bail of $11.6 million (Sh1.18 billion).

Death Penalty

In Dallas Texas, capital murder carries either the death penalty, or a life sentence without parole. The serial killer, who police say posed as a maintenance worker to gain entry into apartments and homes before smothering residents with pillows and stealing valuables to sell online, is facing the death penalty and his case seems to be sealed as new victims spring up and new suits are added on to the previous ones each day.

Chemirmir was arrested in March 2018 after a victim was found dead in her home with a pillow with her make-up smeared on it near her.

According to Dallas police, a relative raised suspicion prompting a quick surveilance around the premises, the police then found Chemirmir throwing some stolen items into a dumpster.
