A 46-year old Dallas man has been charged with killing at least 12 elderly women and stealing their jewelry and other valuables.

According to Associated Press, Billy Chemirmir had been charged previously with the murder of one woman, and the Dallas Country district attorney's office said on yesterday (May 16th) that he'd also been indicted on six counts of murder in the deaths of women whose age ranges between 76 to 94.

He has also been charged with two counts of murder for related attacks and was also indicted on five murder charges there.

Dallas Executive Assistant Chief of Police David Pughes said in a statement last year,

We’re worried we could have more. It will be a monumental task, but we’re up for the challenge and we’re gonna make sure we check each and every case.

The suspect has been in custody since March 2018 over the death of an 81-year old Dallas woman.

His bond is set at $9.1 million.
