A witness testified Tuesday that the defendant in a Brooklyn Park triple murder case is the man she saw lurking outside the day care where the victims were found last April.
The Pioneer Press reports Kamiel Houston-Zizi identified Eddie Mosley as the man whose presence outside the home day care center where she had just dropped off her son made her uncomfortable enough that she called the day care provider, and eventually the police.
Houston-Zizi described the commotion she heard while on the phone with DeLois Brown. The courtroom heard her subsequent 911 call, during which she discovered the bodies of Brown and Brown's parents in a bedroom.
As the Star Tribune reports, prosecutors contend Mosley drove from St. Louis to the home in Brooklyn Park, planning to kill a teenage relative who had accused him of molesting her. Not finding the teen there, Mosley allegedly killed Brown, who is the girl's grandmother, and Brown's parents, James and Clover Bolden.
The defense argues there is no physical evidence linking Mosley to the crime scene and says he could not have driven from St. Louis to Brooklyn Park in the timeframe prosecutors describe.
The Pioneer Press reports a Hennepin County judge is hearing the case, after Mosley declined a jury trial last week.
