Preliminary hearing scheduled for murder suspect
A 23-year-old Cape Girardeau man charged with murdering his 55-year-old father has a preliminary hearing scheduled before Associate Circuit Court Judge Gary A. Kamp at 2 p.m. Feb. 1.
Police say Clayton R. Mosley bludgeoned his father, Charles E. Mosley, to death with a hammer in their home at 1854 Martin Court at about 3 a.m. Jan 5.
Clayton Mosley is charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. He is in custody at the Cape Girardeau County Jail on a $1 million cash bond.
According to the probable-cause statement, Betty Mosley, who is Clayton's mother and Charles' wife, told police she reportedly saw her son hit Charles Mosley in the head with a hammer after she was awakened about 2 a.m. by her son's yelling and cursing. After the attack, Clayton Mosley demanded money from his mother and fled the scene in his car. He was later apprehended by Pemiscot County Sheriff's Department at the Caruthersville, Mo., city limits in a traffic stop.
