NORWICH A 40-year-old inmate at an Ohio federal prison was charged on Wednesday in connection with the 2004 murder of a New Hampshire scientist at a rental property in Norwich, police said.
Mozzelle Brown was charged with murder, felony murder and first-degree robbery. Brown was serving a sentence at the Federal Correctional Institute in Elkton, Ohio, after being convicted of firearms and narcotics violations, police said.
He was brought to Connecticut to face the new charges, police said.
The charges against Brown stem from the slaying of Dr.
Eugene Mallove, a finalist for the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for a book on cold fusion.
Mallove was found fatally beaten in May 2004 on the driveway of a Norwich rental property he owned.
In April 2010, Norwich police arrested Chad Schaffer and Candace Foster for their roles in the murder.
Schaffer is serving a prison sentence for the crime and Foster is awaiting trial, police said.
Brown is being held with bail set at $2 million and is scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court in Norwich on Thursday.
