I've just found an NPC locked in a cell, and rescued him. He told me he is Knight Lautrec of Carim and he will give me a reward later. However, if I press him, he tell me:

I'm free. Now I can get back to work...
Keh heh heh heh...

I'm worried after hearing this line. He reminds me of Yurt, the Silent Chief in Demon's Soul that went killing other NPCs after you freed him.

Did I made a mistake when I freed him? Will he kill other NPCs? Should I kill him right now, while he is still sitting in his cell?

Yes, he eventually kills the Fire Keeper located near the Firelink Shrine. If this does end up happening, you can eventually bring her back to life (when you reach Anor Londo) by invading Lautrec's realm and retrieving her soul. It is inconvenient however, as you cannot interact with the Firelink Bonfire until you bring the Fire Keeper back to life.

Also, the Fire Keeper soul you get for defeating Lautrec is unique. You cannot use a different soul to bring her back. If you accidentally use the specific soul you get from him, you cannot get the Firelink firekeeper back until NG+. –  EvilAmarant7x Oct 31 '11 at 14:19
