A prosecutor Friday said Deshawn James Chappell, the man accused of killing a mental health worker at a group home in Revere in 2011, had “a purpose and a plan” in stabbing Stephanie Moulton and dumping her body in a church parking lot.
“He waited to get her alone,” Assistant District Attorney Edmond Zabin said at the first day of Chappell’s first-degree murder trial in Suffolk Superior Court. Chappell, he said, was a man “with malice in his heart and a knife in his hand” and a man who “went to great lengths to cover up this crime.”
