Dwayne Moore, 35, is on trial for the second time on four counts of first-degree murder and other charges stemming from the Sept. 28, 2010 shootings on Woolson Street in Mattapan.

Moore allegedly killed 21-year-old Simba Martin; Martin’s girlfriend, Eyanna Flonory, 21; her 2-year-old son, Amanihotep Smith; and Levaughn Washum-Garrison, 22, Martin’s friend, who slept on a couch at Martin’s Sutton Street house that night. A fifth man, Marcus Hurd, was shot in the head but survived.

Jurors in the trial, which has been running for five weeks, were chosen from Worcester County residents. That came at the request of the defense which feared Moore could not be tried fairly by jurors drawn from the Boston area. The horrific slayings had shocked residents and made headlines in the city.

The first trial ended in March, after jurors acquitted co-defendant Edward Washington but were deadlocked on the charges against Moore, resulting in a mistrial.
