Judge convicts man in triple killing at Minnesota home

MINNEAPOLIS — A Minnesota judge has found a Missouri man guilty in the shooting deaths of three people at a Brooklyn Park home day care last year.

Hennepin County Judge Todd Barnette issued his verdict Thursday against 35-year-old Eddie Mosley after hearing the non-jury trial that ended last week.

Mosley was charged with first-degree murder in the April 9, 2012, shooting deaths of 59-year-old DeLois Brown, a home day-care provider, and her parents, 83-year-old James Bolden Sr. and 81-year-old Clover Bolden.

Prosecutors argued Mosley drove from his home in St. Louis to Brooklyn Park intending to kill a girl he was accused of sexually assaulting in Minnesota. But the girl was not at Brown's home.

The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/18O4BtD) reports the defense argued Mosley had no motive to kill the victims.
