Former Milledgeville Resident, Witness to Shooting Killed in Illinois
Former Milledgeville resident Curtis Mosely was gunned down in Urbana, Illinois this week, days before he was set to testify in a separate shooting investigation.
Mosely was expected to be a key witness in that trial. Now, Mosely's mother and girlfriend say they were there when he was killed.
URBANA--There's more information surfacing about a star witness who was gunned down and killed, before making it in to a courtroom to testify.
Now the victim's mother and girlfriend say, there were there when Curtis Mosley, 29, was killed.
In court, prosecutors said the women saw a black man, with a tattoo on cheek, entered the apartment.
They think it was Ardis Fenn, 23, who shot Mosley.
Fenn turned himself in to authorities, not in connection with the shooting, but for failing to appear in court on Tuesday.
This for allegedly shooting Mosley in the leg, last summer.
Here's a timeline to break this down further.
Mosley was shot in the leg on June 12th 2012.
Mosley then gave a statement to police, saying Fenn was the one who allegedly shot him.
Fenn was charged on June 14th, with aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm.
Fenn posted bail last week.
Mosley was set to testify in court as a key witness against Fenn yesterday.
However, Monday night, Mosley was shot and killed at his apartment in Urbana.
Since Fenn did not show up to court Tuesday morning, a $10 Million warrant for his arrest with bond was set.
Again, Fenn turned himself.
An even more bizarre twist ...
Jakeem Nelson, 20, was arrested Tuesday, for allegedly bribing Mosley on Monday afternoon, not to testify against Fenn.
During today's hearing, prosecutors presented evidence to Judge Difanis, to continue using Mosley's statements given to police in the June incident.
Here's a statement from Champaign County State's Attorney Julia Rietz:
"Judge Difanis ruled that based one the concept of forfeiture by wrongdoing, the prosecution would be allowed to present Mosley's statements to Urbana officers, as evidence in the trial"
This trial is set to continue Thursday morning at 9 a.m.
