Guilty verdict in triple murder at Brooklyn Park day care

A Hennepin County judge convicted a St. Louis man of murder in last year's slayings of a Brooklyn Park day care provider and her elderly parents.

Judge Todd Barnette found 35-year-old Eddie Mosley guilty of all nine felony counts against him in the non-jury trial. WCCO reports Mosley's sentencing is scheduled for Friday.

Prosecutors argued Mosley drove to the Twin Cities intending to kill a teenage relative who had accused him of sexually assaulting her. They said he looked for her at the home of DeLois Brown, who was the girl's grandmother and was a witness to the alleged assault. He did not find the girl but was convicted of fatally shooting Brown and her parents, who were in their 80's and had recently moved into the home.

His lawyer had argued there was no physical evidence connecting Mosley to the crime scene. His brother testified that Mosley was in St. Louis at a family event on the day in question.

Mosley waived his right to a jury trial, opting for a judge's verdict.
