MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minnesota judge has sentenced a Missouri man to life in prison without parole for the fatal shootings of a Brooklyn Park home day-care provider and her elderly parents last year.

Hennepin County Judge Todd Barnette Friday gave 35-year-old Eddie Mosley three consecutive life sentences without parole.

Barnette had found Mosley guilty Thursday in the killings of 59-year-old DeLois Brown, a home day-care provider, and her parents, 83-year-old James Bolden Sr. and 81-year-old Clover Bolden, 81, at Brown's house.

Prosecutors argued Mosley drove from his home in St. Louis to Brooklyn Park intending to kill a girl he was accused of sexually assaulting in Minnesota, but the girl was not at Brown's home.

The Star Tribune reports Mosley declined to comment before sentencing. His attorney says Mosley maintains his innocence.
