BOSTON (CBS) – The prosecution’s star witness took the stand in the Mattapan massacre trial.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones reports
Dwayne Moore and Edward Washington are charged with killing four people including a child in 2010.
Kimani Washington is Edward Washington’s cousin. He admitted he was part of a plan to rob the victims of drugs and money, but was outraged when Moore admitted he shot Eyanna Flonory who was clutching her two-year old son.
When they got to the house, Washington says he ordered a drug customer and a man he was with to strip naked, fearing they might have guns. Inside, he says he was surprised to see a woman and a child. He says he ordered them to the floor.
“I told them nothing’s gonna happen to her,” Kimani said in court. “I didn’t know she was there, just be cool ain’t nothing gonna happen, she straight.”
Washington says he fled in a stolen car and when he met up with Moore and his cousin later, he says Moore told them he’d killed the people in the house.
He recalled opening a plastic bag of cash. “We took $600 apiece,” he says.
