• Boston man faces sentencing in quadruple slaying


    BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) — A Boston man faces mandatory life without parole for killing four people — including a 2-year-old boy — in a drug-related robbery in 2010.

    Dwayne Moore will be sentenced Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court. He was convicted Monday of four counts of first-degree murder. He was also convicted of home invasion and armed robbery, but was acquitted of three other charges.

    Moore's lawyer says he plans to appeal.

    It was Moore's second trial in the case. The first trial ended with a hung jury.

    During trial Moore's lawyer described the state's star witness, Kimani Washington, as a "snake oil salesman" who himself committed the crimes. Washington admitted participating in the robbery, but said he left before the shootings in the Mattapan section of Boston.

    A fifth shooting victim survived, but was paralyzed and is now in a wheelchair.
