First bill tied to alleged senior living murders introduced as families seek increased regulation and 3 more charges are filed

A grand jury on Tuesday handed down three new capital murder indictments against Billy Chemirmir, already charged with 17 counts of capital murder and two counts of attempted capital murder of older adults, most of them senior living residents, in two Texas counties. The action comes just days after a Texas legislator filed the state’s first bill in response to the string of suspected murders.
