Judge to allow Mattapan victim’s testimony at retrial

A Suffolk Superior Court judge has ruled that Marcus Hurd, the man wounded in the 2010 Mattapan quadruple slaying, can testify that he now recognizes Dwayne Moore as one of the gun-wielding men in the horrific attack.

Judge Jeffrey Locke said prosecutors are “entitled to elicit the identification,” noting that the jury in Moore’s retrial will evaluate Hurd’s testimony after what is is likely to be “vigorous cross examination and impeachment” by defense attorneys who will highlight the difference between Hurd’s current and previous statements.
