A mistrial was declared in the murder trial of 48-year-old illegal alien Billy Chemirmir, accused of murdering 24 elderly Americans across Collin County and Dallas County, Texas, as the jury remained "hopelessly deadlocked" 11-to-1.
As Breitbart News has reported for years, Chemirmir, an illegal alien from Kenya who later secured a green card, is accused of murdering 24 elderly Americans in Texas from April 2016 to 2018.
Dallas County, Texas, prosecutors started the first of two trials against Chemirmir, where they sought a life sentence, detailing evidence that included testimony from 91-year-old Mary Bartel who alleges Chemirmir attempted to murder and rob her as he allegedly did with all of his victims.
Prosecutors told the 12-person jury that Chemirmir would break into a victims' residence, smother them with a pillow until they were dead, steal their belongings and then sell their belongings online.
Chemirmir's 24 alleged victims are:
83-year-old Leah Corken
82-year-old Juanita Purdy
88-year-old Mary Brooks
84-year-old Minnie Campbell
82-year-old Ann Conklin
75-year-old Rosemary Curtis
85-year-old Norma French
92-year-old Doris Gleason
81-year-old Lu Thi Harris
81-year-old Carolyn MacPhee
81-year-old Miriam Nelson
91-year-old Phyllis Payne
94-year-old Phoebe Perry
80-year-old Martha Williams
82-year-old Joyce Abramowitz
87-year-old Glenna Day
89-year-old Solomon Spring
90-year-old Doris Wasserman
86-year-old Margaret White
79-year-old Diana Delahunty
93-year-old Mamie Dell Miya
86-year-old Catherine Probst Sinclair
90-year-old Marilyn Bixler

Late last week, as the jury went into deliberations, messages came back to the court that one juror had effectively stalled the process. The juror did not ask to again see the evidence presented at trial nor did they suggest that they would change their mind in their conclusion.
The jury sent a note to the court stating they were "hopelessly deadlocked." The judge presiding over the case declared a mistrial as a result of the 11-to-1 hung jury.
"She didn't even go back to [look at the evidence]. She had her mind made up before she walked in," a family member of one of the victims told local media.
The Angel Families said they are "sickened" by the outcome of the trial and called on Collins County prosecutors to now move forward with a murder trial against Chemirmir.
[...] At the start of the trial, the Angel Families were not allowed in the courtroom due to regulations stemming from the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. That decision, they said, was "unfair and unfavorable" and must change at the next trial.
"I think it was very unfair and unfavorable to us that we were not in the courthouse today," one of the family members said.
"Having a chance to look at Billy Chemirmir ... and having the jury to look at the victims' children here that are ... what they felt like and they're feeling," he continued. "It was the wrong thing to do. If we had that, we'd have had a much better chance and would have won this hands down."
