NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - Closing arguments have wrapped up in the murder trial of Mozzelle Brown, a man accused of taking part in the fatal beating of a well-known physicist from New Hampshire a decade ago.

Prosecutors say Brown and his cousin, Chad Schaffer, attacked Eugene Mallove in the driveway of his Norwich rental home in May, 2004. Mallove was cleaning out the house after evicting Schaffer’s family for not paying the rent.

Schaffer is serving a 16-year prison sentence for his role in the crime. Brown was brought to trial from a federal prison, where he was serving a 15-year prison sentence as a career criminal on drug and weapons charges.

Mallove was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1991 for a book he wrote on cold fusion theory.
