CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A man the Cuyahoga County prosecutor has deemed a serial killer appeared in court Friday.
Robert Rembert was issued $5 million bond.
Rembert has already served six years in prison for the murder of a man in 1997, but Friday was in court for four more murders.
Rembert was arrested in September in Medina County. That was the day two people -- his own cousin Jerry Rembert, along with Morgan Nietzel -- were found shot to death. Police say Robert Rembert had been living with them.
Investigators say his DNA was also found during the murder investigation of Kimberley Hall in June. Her body was left in a field.
Police also say that his DNA matched a murder that puzzled police back in 1997. The body of Rena May Payne was found in an RTA bathroom that only employees had access to. She did not work there, but Rembert did.
In 1997, Rembert also spent six years in prison for voluntary manslaughter for the 1997 killing of Dadren Lewis in a Cleveland parking lot.
