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

Delegates heckled Deputy President William Ruto during the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report at the Bomas of Kenya over his remarks on the report

The DP was forced to pause his speech after the delegates started booing him after he appeared to express his dissatisfaction at the Youth leader Trans Nzoia County Alex Matere’s remarks about his wheelbarrow donations.

Ruto said by saying that Kenyans should not adopt 16th-century technology, Matere was referring to the wheelbarrows he has been supplying to Kenyans.

However, Ruto noted that the discussions Kenyans should have is why a 16th-century tool has millions of citizens still dependent on it in the 21st-century.

The DP’s remarks didn’t sit well with most of the delegates, which resulted in them openly expressing their displeasure and forcing him to stop talking.

Mbita Member of Parliament Millie Odhiambo appeared mainly pissed by Ruto’s remarks as he stood and jeering Ruto, drowning his speech.

He went on to ask for a minute to conclude his speech but the crowd couldn’t hear of it as they continued to jeer him after he appeared to hit out at the former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka.

Ruto concluded his speech by calling on leaders to refrain from contests pitting the rich and the poor by quoting former US President Abraham Lincoln.

DP Ruto then proceeded to welcome his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta to make his remarks with the delegates still shouting “respect the president,” as he took his seat.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga also hit on the DP for engaging in early campaigns instead of supporting the President in delivering the Big-4 Agenda.

Raila said that Kenyans expect to be united for now but not campaigns of who will be the President in 2022 as they will handle that when the time comes.

The ODM Party leader noted that Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta should be working as a pair to bring a difference in the country.
