"To do this without knowing a person, that you could be so evil, not knowing a
person and you want to do this, that is so sad to be so evil," said Rosa Smith, mother
of Delores DeWitt, who was killed in March.
Jason Thomas Scott, 27, was charged Tuesday in the murder of Delores and Ebony
Dewitt, a mother and daughter who were found in a burning car in March 2009. A
Prince Georges grand jury returned a seven-count indictment against Scott,

carjacking charges.
The investigation eventually led authorities to an old mansion that police believe
served as a thieves' lair. It was there, sources say, that investigators found evidence
