Gwinnett DA to seek death penalty in Moss murder

By Staff
LAWRENCEVILLE - The parents of a Lawrenceville girl whose burned body was found in a trash can last November learned Friday they could face the death penalty if convicted of her murder.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter informed the courts he plans to seek the death penalty against Eman Moss, the child's father, and Tiffany Moss, Eman's wife and the child's stepmother. Porter had indicated earlier in the year that he had plans to seek the death penalty - he made the formal request Friday.

"The murder was committed in a way that was wanton, vile and inhumane and involves depravity of the mind," Porter said in an interview with Atlanta's Fox 5.

The 10-year-old girl's body was discovered in the trash can outside the apartment complex where she lived with her parents. Police reports indicated she had been starved before her body was discarded. Emani Moss weighed just 32 pounds at the time of her death, according to police.
