A man who was not even a suspect in the killings of three New York women until he voluntarily gave up his DNA was convicted of the murders Monday. If you know you have a killing history why would he give up his DNA? Did he not learn anything from G-Dep! Hit the jump to read the rest of the story.

Francisco Acevedo, 43, was found guilty of the serial strangulation murders in Yonkers more than 15 years ago, The Associated Press reported.

Jurors returned the verdict on the first day of deliberations in Westchester County Court.

The killings occurred in 1989, 1991 and 1996. Each woman was found strangled, naked, bound at the hands and facing upward. They were also linked to each other by an unknown set of DNA.

Police figured out whose DNA that was in 2009.

That’s when Acevedo, who was in prison on a drunken driving charge, gave authorities a DNA sample as a condition of an optional parole application.

A Yonkers cold-case detective said investigators had looked at “way more than 100” other potential suspects over the years before they found Acevedo’s blood sample and matched it to the killings.

When Acevedo was arrested on murder charges, “he wasn’t very happy to see us,” Detective John Geiss said last year.

District Attorney Janet DiFiore said Monday: “The evidence based on DNA testing allowed these three murder victims to point the finger of guilt at this defendant.”

At trial, an expert testified it was statistically impossible for the DNA found in vaginal swabs from each of the women to be anyone’s but Acevedo’s. And a motel clerk said he saw Acevedo with one of the women and then found her dead in her bed.

The victims were Maria Ramos, 26, of the Bronx, killed Feb. 5, 1989; Tawana Hodges, 28, of the Bronx, killed March 28, 1991; and Kimberly Moore, 30, of Greenburgh, killed May 24, 1996.

Acevedo was acquitted of three counts of rape. Police had said Ramos and Hodges were prostitutes.

Acevedo’s defense acknowledged he had sex with the three women but denied the rape and murder charges.

He now faces 75 years to life in prison when sentenced Jan. 17.
