On November 12, 2021, Billy Chemirmir, a Kenyan suspected of serial homicides in the United States, will stand trial. According to NBC's Dallas Fort Worth News, the Kenyan is accused of killing 18 people in Dallas and Collin Counties. The 48-year-old is suspected of impersonating a worker in order to get entry to the victims' residences. The date was previously set for April 5, 2021, but was later postponed due to the effects of Covid-19.
The prosecution had sought the death sentence against Chemirmir at first but had changed their minds in June 2021, filing documents at District Attorney John Creuzot's office stating that they would not pursue the case. The death penalty, according to the papers, would require a protracted process that the prosecution did not want to pursue. They want Chemirmir to undergo two jury trials and be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of release.
"In fact, Chemirmir will have no chance of dying anyplace other than in a Texas jail," Creuzot's office said in a statement.
Chemirmir was initially arrested in 2018 and accused of murdering a Dallas lady at her house. He is from Eldama Ravine in Baringo County.
Detectives linked him to other fatalities in the state as a result of the murder probe. Chemirmir was linked to several murder accusations through medical examiner findings and legal actions. However, the suspect's lawyer, Philip Hayes, has stated that the accusations are purely circumstantial and that the evidence given by investigators only put Chemirmir near the crime scene, not pinning him as the culprit.
“It seems like they're blaming him for every inexplicable death they can find. "When you look at it all together, it doesn't add up," Hayes said.
