1985 70 HP Evenrude starting problems

I was out in the boat yesterday and noticed the engine laboring and not able to go full throttle even though the lever was in full throttle
I suddenly heard a snap from the motor and all quit
I was unable to start the engine and had to be towed back
At home I was unable to turn the flywheel by hand, removed all the plugs and still no success
I was able to turn the flywheel with a wrench on the nut, but it was tight
When I put the gear lever in reverse or forward, the prop would turn, in neutral it would not turn as it is supposed to
I recharged the battery and even though the starter engaged the flywheel, it was unable to turn it

Pls Help
