Kenyan facing 24 murder charges in the US


A Kenyan has been handed three new capital murders in the US.

Billy Chemirmir 48, was charged with killing at least 22 elderly women and stealing their jewelry and valuables in Dallas, Texas last year.

According to Dallas News, Chemirmir has now been charged with 17 counts of capital murder and two counts of attempted capital murder in Dallas and Collin counties.

He has also been linked to seven other deaths, bringing the total to 24 deaths in North Texas.

However, his lawyer, Phillip Hayes, said that a lot of the evidence against Chemirmir is circumstantial, according to the Dallas news.
