A 28-year-old suspected serial killer has been convicted of multiple crimes, including carjacking, producing child pornography, theft and other crimes.

The federal jury convicted Jason Thomas Scott of, of Upper Marlboro, of 11 felony charges after a three week trial.

“The evidence shows that Jason Scott was a professional criminal who was methodical and very dangerous, as he progressed from burglaries to armed home invasion robberies and became increasingly violent,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein in a prepared statement.

Authorities said Scott admitted to committing 28 burglaries and nine armed home invasions in Prince George’s County. During one home invasion, Scott is alleged to have sexually assaulted a minor and took pornographic photos of the victim, authorities said.

During a 2009 home invasion and robbery, Scott and an accomplice demanded PIN numbers from the victims’ bank accounts and took from the accounts and stole a vehicle, authorities said.

In another alleged incident, Scott forced a minor to strip and molested her, authorities said.

Scott is also charged in Prince George’s County circuit court with killing Delores Dewitt and her daughter Ebony. Their bodies were found in 2009 in in a burning vehicle in Largo. He is set to go to trial for that case in November.
