Teen who killed family granted unescorted temporary absence from prison

VICTORIA - A British Columbia man who, as a teen, murdered four people and left a two-month-old baby alone in a room with her dead mother, has been granted unescorted temporary absences from prison.

James Ruscitti is serving a life sentence for the 1996 execution-style slayings of his parents, his brother's 17-year-old girlfriend and a boarder who lived in their home near 100 Mile House, 500 kilometres northeast of Vancouver.

Now 33, Ruscitti was 15 when he and a 14-year-old accomplice committed the crimes.

A National Parole Board decision says Ruscitti is considered a moderate to high risk for violent reoffending, but has made progress and apologized to the victims during a parole hearing earlier this month.

With the 60-day unescorted temporary absence, he will attend a community residential facility on Vancouver Island - the first step in what the board decision called a "very gradual" reintegration into society.

The parole decision said the victims' family members want no contact with Ruscitti and one of the conditions of his temporary release is that he make no attempt to contact them. -CP-
