Arrest in Yonkers cold case murders
An alleged serial killer faces life in prison after the Westchester district attorney unsealed a six-count indictment against him yesterday, accusing him of committing three murders in Yonkers between 1989 and 1996.
Francisco Acevedo, formerly of Mount Vernon, was recently arrested on a drunken driving charge, and a DNA sample given to police eventually connected him to the killings.
Acevedo is accused of raping and murdering Kimberly Moore at the Trade Winds Motel on Yonkers Avenue in 1996. He?s also allegedly connected to the deaths of Tawanda Hodges in 1991 and Maria Ramos in 1989.
Acevedo?s currently serving one to three years on his DWI conviction and is being held in Westchester County Jail without bail.
