A Rwandan court has denied bail to a 34-year-old man who confessed to committing 14 murders.
The suspect, Denis Kazungu, faces multiple charges, including murder, rape, forgery and desecration of human corpses.
The judge in the capital, Kigali, said on Tuesday that the court would remand the suspected serial killer in custody for 30 days.
The judge said that although the man had pleaded guilty, he had failed to show remorse or seek forgiveness for his alleged crimes.
The suspect was arrested by the police on 5 September after his landlord reported him for defaulting on his rent for seven months.
Officers from the Rwanda Investigation Bureau discovered at least 12 bodies buried in the kitchen of his house two days later.
Prosecutors say that the man threatened, tortured, raped and then murdered his victims.
