Grand jury indicts parents accused of starving daughter to death

Updated:

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - The Gwinnett County father and stepmother accused of starving to death 10-year-old Emani Moss have been indicted.

A Gwinnett County grand jury indicted Eman and Tiffany Moss on charges of murder, felony murder, cruelty to children and concealing a death.

In early November, police responded to a call from Eman Moss. When officers arrived, they found Emani’s burned body in a dumpster near the apartment where she lived with her father and stepmother.

The father and stepmother were arrested after a subsequent investigation.

Court records show a history of cruelty and abuse accusations dating back to when Emani was an infant.

And a revelation that the Georgia Division of Child and Family Services had previously investigated allegations of Emani’s abuse without removing her from the home led to upheaval at the agency.

Eman and Tiffany Moss’ two younger children remain in the custody of DFACS. Despite being in jail, they both attempted to get the court to allow them custody.

Eman and Tiffany Moss are being held in the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
