MINNEAPOLIS - The man charged with killing a Brooklyn Park day care provider and her elderly parents has been found guilty of all the counts against him.

Eddie Mosley was charged with first-degree murder in the April 9, 2012, shooting deaths of DeLois Brown, a home day-care provider, and her parents, James Bolden and Clover Bolden, at Brown's house.

Prosecutors say Mosley drove from his home in St. Louis, Missouri to Brooklyn Park with the intention of killing a young relative, whom he was accused of sexually assaulting in Minnesota, and Brown, because she would be a witness.

According to an earlier criminal complaint in which Mosley was charged with three counts of second-degree murder, a few days before the murders Mosley received a criminal complaint charging him with first-degree criminal sexual conduct against his juvenile niece.

The juvenile is the daughter of a woman who is a relative to DeLois Brown. After being charged by summons Mosely allegedly told the woman she needed to "make it go away," but she refused.

Investigators allege that Mosely knew his victim had been dropped off for daycare at Brown's home, but apparently was not aware that the child was no longer going there. They say he convinced a friend to drive with him in Mosely's black Dodge Durango with a bicycle in the back.

That man told authorities that when they reached Minnesota, Mosely stopped the truck, took the bike out, and told him to go buy coffee and cigarettes and come back. When he did, Mosely was waiting for him, his face covered in blood.

The witness says Mosely told him "I f---ed up."

Brown had just moved her parents up from their home in Missouri to Minnesota because their health was failing.

James Bolden Jr., DeLois' brother and son of the Boldens, tells KARE 11 the initial charges were not closure for his family but did say "knowing makes a difference." He also said he has never heard of Mosley.
