James E. Swann Jr court room sketch

Washington, DC– A serial killer that terrorized northwest Washington two decades ago is asking for a temporary release from confinement to spend a day with his father.

In court Tuesday, a defense psychologist testified that Swann Jr. is not a threat and that his psychosis is under control, NBC Washington’s Pat Collins reported. His father testified that he can control his son.

In the winter and spring of 1993, James E. Swann Jr. killed four people and injured five others in shotgun attacks he carried out in the Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights neighborhoods.

The court ordered him confined indefinitely to the Saint Elizabeths psychiatric treatment facility.

Now, James Swann Sr., the patient’s father, would like to spend 12 hours with his son so they can go fishing or bowling or out to eat like they used to. So James Jr. has submitted to be temporarily released from St. Elizabeths.

The government wants to block the release.
