Victim dealt with the zoo of the DC jail each work day and then coped with her disturbed son at home.
WALDORF, MD. – A District Correctional Officer was murdered by her son in Waldorf on January 11, 2018, reports Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry. The suspect was the subject of a Peace Order taken out by a person with whom he had recently been stalking on the internet.
Charles County Sheriff’s detectives arrested Mario Marchell Dunn, 32, of Waldorf in connection with the
murder of his mother, Cpl. Swanda Ruegenea Dunn, 57, of 775 University Drive, Waldorf, whose body was found on January 11, 2018, on Old Washington Road near Smallwood Drive. Dunn is accused of stabbing his mother while they were driving home from a relative’s house.
After the murder, Dunn removed his mother from the vehicle and left her in the roadway. Dunn was arrested on January 11th after detectives identified the victim and served a search warrant at her house – where her son lived – and recovered evidence linking him to the crime.
Police say that a clear motive has not been established. Dunn was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, assault and other related charges. Det. J. Long is investigating.
The Peace Order against Dunn was taken out on the same day that he allegedly murdered his mother and a court hearing is set for Jan. 18, 2018 in Charles County District Court.
A violent criminal history racked up by Dunn dated back to 2010 when an assault charge in Charles County District Court was put on the Stet Docket by the Charles County States Attorney. Dunn was arrested and charged by Charles County Officer Bagley on July 1, 2010, and he was released on personal recognizance the next day.
Cpl. Dunn had been dealing with her son’s episodes of misbehavior and made sure he attended weekly counseling sessions.
On May 7, 2009, Dunn was charged with telephone misuse for repeated phone calls to a victim and the charge was put on the Stet Docket by the Charles County States Attorney on June 15, 2010. Other charges were dropped.
In 2013, Dunn posted this message on his Facebook page:
