Mattapan massacre indictments

Mattapan massacre indictments
The DA’s office just announced the grand jury indictments of three suspects — hit with a combined total of 23  charges — in the Sept. 28 Mattapan massacre case.

Here’s the release …

The Suffolk County Grand Jury today returned indictments charging three men with a total of 23 offenses stemming from the shooting deaths of two men, a young woman, and her infant son on Woolson Street last fall, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

The indictments charge:

1. DWAYNE MOORE (D.O.B. 6/25/77) of Mattapan with four counts of first-degree murder and single counts of aggravated assault and battery, armed assault with intent to murder, armed home invasion, armed robbery, trafficking in more than 28 grams of a Class B substance, and unlawful possession of a firearm as a Level III armed career criminal;

2. EDWARD WASHINGTON (D.O.B. 3/28/79) of Dorchester with four counts of first-degree murder and single counts of aggravated assault and battery, armed assault with intent to murder, armed home invasion, armed robbery, and unlawful possession of a firearm as a Level III armed career criminal; and

3. KIMANI WASHINGTON (D.O.B. 10/17/75) of Dorchester with armed carjacking, armed home invasion, armed robbery, possession of a Class D substance with intent to distribute, trafficking in more than 28 grams of a Class B substance, and unlawful possession of a firearm as a Level III armed career criminal.

“These indictments reflect a herculean effort by Boston Police homicide detectives and Suffolk prosecutors who would not rest until the truth of these horrible crimes was known,” Conley said. “Our goal now is to prove the charges in court beyond a reasonable doubt and find justice for the friends, families, and community the victims left behind.”

    I'm pleased to see some justice for all involved. Not only did the victims leave us too soon, but the assailants have also lost their lives to senseless actions with unchangeable consequences.
