For over a year, serial killing suspect went undiscovered

"This case plagued our community for more than a year...and left behind a trail of victims that included mothers, sons, brothers, sisters and families still mourning the loss of their loved ones", Williams said at a press conference where she announced Saucedo's arrest.

Update 8.17pm: A former bus driver arrested over a string of killings that terrorised several neighbourhoods of Phoenix, Arizona, has declared "I'm innocent" during a brief court hearing.

The former bus driver's only other comment was to acknowledge that he understood the objective of the court appearance late Monday night.

Saucedo will be held without bond and his next court date is scheduled for May 15.

23-year-old Aaron Jean Saucedo, was booked Monday on a total of 26 charges relating to 12 shooting incidents that left nine people dead. Most of the killings were in a diverse, mostly Latino neighborhood.

Police fielded thousands of tips, went door-to-door in seeking information and analyzed ballistics from a different, unrelated serial shooting case.

Phoenix police detectives sorted through 3,300 silent witness tips to lead them to the accused killer of nine.

Details of the evidence police gathered implicating Saucedo were not available because a judge temporarily granted a prosecution request to seal records related to his case, court spokeswoman Karen Arra said.

A man was arrested Monday in a string of serial killings that rattled a Phoenix neighborhood past year, marking a major break in a case that involved nine deaths and a dozen separate shootings. The judge said Saucedo faces eight counts of first-degree murder and multiple counts of other crimes.

Police are still determining a motive, and have not found correlations between most of the victims and Saucedo.

President Buhari proceeded to London On Sunday night for follow-up medical consultation with his doctors. Also, the President has not left the Presidential Villa since his return from his last medical vacation.

Williams said the first victim in the shootings was Raul Romero, 61, who was killed in August 2015.

The most prominent domestic violence hotline in the USA says there's been a sharp increase in calls from abuse victims struggling with issues related to their immigration status. Authorities investigated Saucedo more closely and connected him to the serial killings.

Saucedo, who has been in custody since April, pleaded not guilty to that charge.

The Associated Press was unable to reach Saucedo's public defender on Monday.

While Saucedo knew the first victim killed in August 2015, the other slayings appear to have been random, police said.

The suspect then went on a killing spree from March of a year ago through July, police said.

Police say a man accused of killing two engaged doctors at a luxury Boston condominium building has a criminal history of robbing banks. "They had a clear mission. bring the killer to justice and get it right".

The mother of Jesse Olivas, Lydia Lopez, said she had a feeling her son's death was linked to the "serial street shooter".
