Francisco Acevedo Sentenced to 75 Years to Lifeon January 18, 2012 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Francisco Acevedo was found guilty in November of the murders of Maria Ramos, Tawana Hodges, and Kimberley Moore. After angry and heartbreaking testimony from several of the victims’ family members, Acevedo was sentenced to 75 years to life in prison on Tuesday.
The murders occurred in 1989, 1991, and 1996, but Acevedo was not connected with the crimes until he voluntarily submitted DNA in 2009. This was part of a deal to get out of jail early on a DWI conviction.
Each of the women was beaten badly and posed naked when they were dumped. Their hands were tied behind their backs.
Westchester County Judge Barbara Zambelli said:
These were monstrous crimes committed by a cruel and inhuman individual.
Acevedo maintains that he is innocent.
