A TWISTED killer, who beat and strangled his victims, before posing them naked with their hands tied behind their backs has been found guilty of their murders.
Francisco Acevedo's killing spree began in 1989, with the slaying of Maria Ramos, but his thrist for blood could not be quenched.
So two-years later he beat and strangled Tawanda Hodges and five years later in 1996 he murdered Kimberly Moore in the same way.
All of the victims were posed in a sickening manner, after their deaths to cause as much horror as possible to the person who found them.
Moore's stepfather, Donald Dozier told lohud.com: "I feel happy that justice has been done,"
The case was the culmination of a nine-year investigation by Detective John T. Geiss of Yonkers' Cold Case Squad, who led a nine-year investigation into the murders.
They finally got a break when Acevedo wasn't arrested until 2009, when he provided DNA as a condition of a parole application.
It matched the DNA found inside all three victims.
He said: "Today was about Maria and Tawanda and Kimberly. It's been a long wait."
Acevedo could be imprisoned for 75 years to life if the judge orders maximum sentences to run consecutively for the murders when he is sentenced in January.
