I'd always understood that quote to mean that, Weer did not kill "many" of
the other characters of the book, not that he didn't kill anyone.  I doubt
Wolfe would have had to think about it if Weer was entirely innocent, and
it seems pretty plain that he at least (accidentally) killed the boy at
the top of the stairs.
