Witness: Man Accused Of Killing 3 Seemed Desperate

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A witness in the trial of a St. Louis man charged with killing three people at a Minnesota home says he seemed "desperate" to silence a teenager who had accused him of molesting her.

Thirty-five-year-old Eddie Mosley is charged in the April 9, 2012, deaths of 59-year-old DeLois Brown and Brown's elderly parents, 83-year-old James Bolden Sr. and 81-year-old Clover Bolden.

Last April, Mosley was subpoenaed to face charges of sexually assaulting a teen in Minnesota. The girl's mother testified Friday that Mosley called her multiple times after he was subpoenaed. Prosecutors say he then drove to Brown's Brooklyn Park home to silence the girl, but she wasn't there.

Mosley's attorney, Travis Keil, has said Mosley had no motive to kill the victims.

Mosley's trial resumes Monday.
