Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said Thursday that Elias Acevedo faces four counts of aggravated murder, 173 counts of rape, 115 counts of kidnapping and one count of gross sexual imposition.

Acevedo, 49, is accused in the death of Pamela Pemberton in October 1994, and of another woman called “Jane Doe” in 1995.

Prosecutors believe Acevedo is linked to the 1995 disappearance of Christina Adkins, who was 18 and pregnant when she vanished.

An attorney who represents Acevedo in a separate case said he has not been assigned to him in this case and could not comment.
