New account questioned in Mattapan trial

Marcus Hurd, the sole survivor of the 2010 attack in Mattapan that killed four people, including a 2-year-old child, gave a detailed account Monday of the slayings and sparred with a defense attorney during a heated cross-examination. But he did not testify that he recognized defendant Dwayne Moore as the shooter respon­sible for the massacre.

Hurd was the last witness called by Assistant District Attorney Edmond Zabin in Suffolk ­Superior Court, where Moore is on trial for the second time on four counts of first-degree murder in the Sept. 28, 2010, killings on Woolson Street.
