WOODBURY -- A grand jury has indicted a Paulsboro man on murder charges in connection with the March 2016 beating death of John Scott.

Mosley punched Scott in the face, causing him to fall to the ground, according to the police report.

Mosley punched the victim again "while Scott lay defenseless in the roadway," police said.

The police report states that the injuries suffered when he fell caused his death.

Scott was found unconscious and taken to Cooper University Hospital, Camden, where he died three days later.

His family reported on social media at the time that he had suffered bleeding on the brain and leg injuries in the assault.

In August, prosecutors publicly identified Mosley as a suspect in the case and he turned himself in to police a day later.

He was indicted last week on charges of first-degree murder and second-degree aggravated assault.

Authorities have not indicated a motive in the case.
