DA to seek death penalty for custodial dad charged with murdering 10-year-old daughter (Lawrenceville, Georgia)

Newspapers have a habit of doing this. Mischaracterizing a murder done by a custodial dad and/or the step as something done by "the parents."

Dad EMAN MOSS has a long history of domestic violence and child abuse, but managed to gain and retain custody anyway When is something going to be done about the authorities who allowed this father to brutalize this little girl for so long and finally kill her?

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.
