BOSTON (AP) — Jurors have completed their first day of deliberations in the retrial of a Boston man charged with killing four people and leaving a fifth paralyzed.
Deliberations are to resume Thursday.
Dwayne Moore is charged with killing three adults and a toddler in the city’s Mattapan neighborhood in September 2010. His first trial ended in a hung jury. A second suspect was acquitted.
His defense lawyer attacked the star witness in the case, Kimani Washington, describing him as a ‘‘snake oil salesman’’ who himself committed the crimes. Washington has admitted participating in the robbery but says he left before the shootings.
The prosecutor said the testimony of Washington and 42 other witnesses prove Moore’s guilt.
Jurors from Worcester County were picked for the trial after the defense said publicity made it hard to get an impartial Boston jury.
