Billy Kipkorir Chemirmir, 46, has been charged with killing at least 12 People in the United States.

Chemirmir, a former health care worker, was indicted Tuesday on six additional counts of capital murder in Dallas County and five counts in Collin County.

In each of the cases, he smothered his victim with a pillow and robbed her, according to court records.

Billy allegedly left his home about 20 years ago for the US following an invite by his sister. While in the US he secured a job as a home healthcare nurse and it is reported that he is also in the US illegally and has an immigration hold on him.

Chemirmir had been in the Dallas County Jail since March 2018 facing a capital murder charge in the death of 81-year-old Lu Thi Harris.

He was indicted Tuesday in the deaths of six Dallas County women:

  • Phyllis Payne, 91, who died May 14, 2016, according to the indictment and her obituary
  • Phoebe Perry, 94, who died June 5, 2016, according to a family obituary
  • Norma French, 85, who died Oct. 8, 2016, according to the indictment and her obituary
  • Doris Gleason, 92, who died Oct. 29, 2016, according to her family and the indictment
  • Rosemary Curtis, 76, who died Jan. 19, 2018, according to her obituary
  • Mary Brooks, 87, who died Jan. 31, 2018, according to the indictment and her obituary

Details about the new Collin County indictments were not immediately available on Wednesday evening.

Doris Gleason’s death was one of the many ruled as homicides and linked to Billy Chemirmir

Chemirmir has also been accused of trying to suffocate two other elderly women in Collin County. Court records show he is facing two counts of attempted capital murder there.

He is accused of attacking a 93-year-old woman on Oct. 29, 2017, at the Parkview Elderly Assisted Living facility in Frisco.

The victim told police that a well-dressed man knocked on her door and said he was a maintenance worker. When she told him she didn’t need any work done, he forced his way inside and knocked the woman from her walker to the floor.

The man grabbed a pillow from the couch and tried to smother her. The victim told police she “began to pray, believing she was about to die.”

Jewelry was discovered missing from her apartment, and cell-phone records put Chemirmir in that location around the time of the attack. He was indicted on the attempted murder charge in May 2018.

Two months later, Chemirmir was indicted on another attempted murder charge. In that case, he is accused of assaulting a 91-year-old woman in her Plano apartment in March 2018. She told police a man put a pillow over her face, causing her to lose consciousness, and her jewelry had been stolen.

While investigating the Plano assault, police saw Chemirmir dump a jewelry box into a trash bin in Dallas. The box led police to the home of Harris, where she was found dead.

Plano Police Chief Gregory W. Rushin said at a news conference after Chemirmir’s arrest that the man uses his “health care experience to his advantage, targeting and exploiting seniors.”

“This is terribly disturbing,” Rushin said at the time.

Authorities said at the time that they planned to review hundreds of unattended deaths of elderly women — including deaths that were previously ruled as resulting from natural causes — to determine whether they could be linked to Chemirmir.

In 2016, Chemirmir pretended to be an employee at the Edgemere Retirement Community in Dallas, according to court records. He used the alias Benjamin Koitaba.

Chemirmir’s bail is now set at more than $9 million.

In 2018, his family in Kabonyony village, Eldama Ravine in Baringo, was shocked over reports that their son had killed an 81-year-old granny at a Texas home for the elderly in the US.

“We have seen and heard news going around about Billy. We are yet to confirm from his sister in the United States,” said one close relative.

In the report, authorities have checked Billy’s medical background and Dallas Police will analyze 750 unattended elderly female deaths in the area since 2010

In 2016, he was accused of posing as an employee at a retirement community in Dallas.

How Raila convinced Uhuru to rename City Stadium after Joe Kadenge

Published

on

Nairobi’s City Stadium will be renamed after the late Kenyan football icon Joe Kadenge.

Kadenge passed on at the Meridian Hospital in Nairobi on Sunday, July 7 after a lengthy battle with stroke.

Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday, June 16, was accompanied by Amani National Congress head Musalia Mudavadi to a fundraiser at All Saints Cathedral – purposed specifically to raise funds to help foot the bill of Kadenge’s burial.

During his speech, Raila revealed he engaged President Uhuru Kenyatta on renaming Nairobi’s City Stadium after the now-departed legend.

“Joe was a legend and that is why I proposed to President Kenyatta on the possibility of renaming City Stadium in his honour,” he said.

He also highlighted following the President’s orders, Kadenge’s South B home would be handed to his family, with Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to see through the paperwork.

“It was Joe’s wish that the house in Mariakani estate be handed over to him and that wish was granted by the President,” Raila added.

Kadenge’s family had earlier appealed for funds from well-wishers, estimating the full budget to be Sh5 million.

“I have talked to President Uhuru Kenyatta on the renaming of City Stadium to Joe Kadenge Stadium. Both of us have spoken with Governor Mike Sonko on the matter,” the ODM leader posted on Twitter.

The former Premier contributed Sh1 million, with President Uhuru Kenyatta also donating out a similar amount. Governor Sonko also contributed Sh1 million, with ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi giving out Sh150,000.

Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris contributed Sh50,000, with COTU boss Francis Atwoli, Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi and ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna donating Sh200,000, Sh100,000 and Sh50,000 respectively.

Regarded as the FINEST footballer ever produced by Kenya, Kadenge played for Maragoli United and scored the fastest ever goal in the Kenyan Premier League.

The legend played for Abaluyha United and won the Kenya Premier League in 1966.

This was after he made a comeback to football after hanging his boots in 1965, guiding Harambee Stars to win the inaugural East and Central Africa Challenge Cup.

In 1970, Kadenge stepped down as a player and went into coaching and was later appointed the national team’s head coach.

Kadenge was named Harambee Stars coach in 2002 before suffering a stroke in 2006.

He will be buried on Saturday, July 20, in Soliani Village, Vihiga County.
