10/29/17 - Lawyers agree to DNA testing in Swearingen's death row case

 

Larry Ray Swearingen was sentenced to death in July 2000 for the 1998 abduction, sexual assault and murder of Melissa Trotter, a 19-year-old college student from Montgomery County, Texas. DNA testing excluded Swearingen as the perpetrator, and forensic science provides an airtight alibi: Swearingen was in the county jail on outstanding traffic warrants at the time Trotter was murdered and her body dumped in the Sam Houston National Forest.

 

Trotter, who was last seen alive on December 8, 1998, was murdered and her body dumped in the woods by late end of December 1998 (after 12/23/98). Swearingen was arrested on December 11, 1998, and has not been released ever since.

 

Swearingen's seventh execution date has now been set for August 21, 2019.
