A serial killer in Rwanda pleaded guilty in court Thursday, saying he killed 14 people. Most of the victims were women.
Denis Kazungu, 34, pleaded guilty to charges including murder, rape and robbery. He appeared at the Kicukiro court in the capital Kigali.
Kazungu smiled as police led him into the courtroom but appeared to show no other emotions during the hearing.
Police discovered 12 bodies in that home, but said he killed two other people whose bodies have not been found.
The victims include 11 women and one man, authorities said. The gender of the other two people Kazungu said he killed was not immediately clear.
Kazungu did not have a lawyer at the hearing and is expected to appear in court again on Tuesday.
Police claimed the suspect lured people from bars to his home in a suburb of Kigali.

Although the identities of his victims have not been officially released, one woman has come forward in interviews with local media claiming to have escaped from Kazungu.
Authorities say the suspect used different names in an attempt to hide his true identity. Police found the bodies after Kazungu’s landlord went to the authorities for help because he was not being paid rent.
