Francisco Acevedo Convicted of Three Murderson November 16, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
A Westchester County jury found Francisco Acevedo guilty Monday of the murders of Maria Ramos, Tawana Hodges, and Kimberley Moore. He could be sentenced to prison for 75 years to life.
Acevedo was tied to the murders after he submitted DNA in connection to a drunken driving charge. He had not been a suspect previously.
During trial, a prosecution DNA expert testified that it was impossible for the DNA found in the three dead women to be from anyone but him. The defense admitted that Acevedo had sex with the women, but contended that he did not kill them.
