Missouri Man Convicted in Brooklyn Park Day Care Triple Murder

A St. Louis man was found guilty by a judge in a triple murder inside a Brooklyn Park day care.

Thirty-five-year-old Eddie Mosley was convicted on nine murder counts for the deaths of Delois Brown and her parents, James and Clover Bolden.

The murders occurred in April of 2012.

So many people wanted to hear the verdict, the courtroom was beyond packed. Those who didn't get there early enough couldn't get a seat. 

Knowing that, the Bolden family shared their private pain with everyone else after the hearing. "If someone is the type of person who can do this we don't want him on the street," James Bolden said.

He aimed the strong words at Mosley, who he said shattered his family. Bolden lost his sister and his parents.

Eddie Mosley knew all three victims. They weren't related but they treated Mosley like family. 

Attorneys call the crime horrendous; Mosley fired a gun against the victims' faces or heads, which is why prosecutors are calling for the most severe penalty possible.

"Life without the possibility of parole, and frankly that's what Mr. Mosley deserves," Hennepin County Prosecutor Mike Freeman said.

All along, police believe Mosley targeted the home and killed the victims in a botched attempt to silence a teen at the daycare who accused him of rape. 

Sentencing is set for Friday at 3 p.m.
