Steven Lomax Jr. shot and killed his sister's husband on Easter Sunday, police say.
Phoenix resident Steven Lomax Jr. shot and killed his sister's husband, Richard Swann, on Easter Sunday morning, police say.

At least one of the shots was fired while Lomax was on the phone with a 911 operator.

After his arrest, Lomax told police he was tired of his brother-in-law's alleged physical and verbal abuse of his sister, Debra. The suspect, 33, lived with the couple at 8101 West Trafalgar Avenue.


Cops say Lomax told others in the home to take a walk, then retrieved a handgun, entered Swann's bedroom and shot him multiple times.

Debra Swann called 911 and reported that her brother confessed to her that, "I killed your husband."

At some point, Lomax also got on the phone and "admitted to shooting the victim, and shot the victim a subsequent time while on the phone with 911."

All this before 9 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Police are seeking a charge of first-degree murder.

Hey guys someone lost an uncle , a father a brother a husband . It's not funny nor the least bit amusing to see this kind of garbage about two people . I have never seen people comment some bull in ally life . Let me tell all of you people something my cousin was an amaizing person and still is . As for Richard , I didn't live there I only went by what family tells me but shame on those of you who get on here and call my cousin names . I grew up knowing right from wrong and there's always a better way of doing things , did my Cousin do the right thing well that's for him and God to figure out . All I'm saying is quit the name calling cause it won't get anyone anywhere.

@lsddesign2000 Right. Steve beats the shit out of  him, goes to jail, the A-hole is still there when he gets out.

You knew them both and never heard of abuse? That's one of the reasons Don fired him the first time and why I think you're a bald faced liar.

Your own business and houses? Dealing meth must be a lucrative business.

@brakvinna funny cuz I heard they passed his sister off as his for a while and that came from the horses and his wifes mouth  Also this 29 year old should be old enough to deal with real life it may hurt to hear the truth but Im sorry I will not sit back and watch steve get trashed by losers who either chose not to step in or think he is some great fucking person. HES NOT NEVER WAS. As for the 16 year old I am sorry that child must go thru this but at the same time I hope this keeps him safer and saner not having to deal with that.

He had two stepdaughters if the 29 yo is a female.

@lsddesign2000 BTW Shes also doing meth Im sure she doesnt tell everyone about that either lol if u only knew what has gone on since they got married u would speak so differently. Have ur opinion thats fine but those of us involved and/or affected  very closely by this also know what went on she couldnt hide it from everyone.

@lsddesign2000 If that was true, which it isn't, he could answer the paradoxical question "Have you quit beating your wife?".

@AmericanJustice That's the way I'm dealing with it. Just like the soldier falling on the grenade for his comrades.

@lsddesign2000  You're definitely on drugs with that statement.He was a monster. Hope all you want. You can testify and will be outnumbered 100-1.

@lsddesign2000 Really Richard was your friend? So were you his meth dealer? Did you know he first had sex with his wife when she was 13?? Coming from someone who knows the family and was not only there to PERSONALLY WITNESS HIM BEATING HER PUSHING HER DOWN THE STAIRS AT WORK AND LAUGHING SLAMMING HER HEAD INTO THE ROOF OF A CAR I KNOW what went on because i witnessed it. Steve is a phenominal person and did what EVERYONE wanted to do to that piece of Shi*! They lost custody of their kids because of the meth and he also beat his EX WIFE. Better yet the numerous times he threatened to kill her and his own son. He even threatened to kill me because i told her family what was going on. But your his friend right? Obviously you dont know your friends or your a filthy tweeker just like him. STEVE DID WHAT ANY AMAZING BROTHER would do when you find out your sister is being beat and the kids molested. Respond to that jackass!!

@lsddesign2000 BS lol he tormented her at work he controled her and yes she obviously liked it or she wouldnt have stayed although from what I hear she was afraid to leave him. It was witnessed by many and they did nothing which is disgusting. She lost her pay and almost lost her job multiple times. he was also fired from the same place and told to stay away cuz he threatened the lives of those who did speak out and try to help her. So sad that u call someone like him ur friend maybe u should have been around more to see what was going on.

@lsddesign2000 BWAAAHAHAHAHA! He was a bum that couldn't hold a job and sponged off of Debra.
