A woman in Georgia was sentenced to death by lethal injection after a jury convicted her for starving her 10-year-old stepdaughter.
According to the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office, Tiffany Moss, 36, is set to be put to death between June 7 and 14. The date is unlikely because of automatic case review and appeals.
Moss was found guilty of homicide, child tormenting and concealing a murder on Monday.
Authorities found the burnt corpse of Emani Moss in a trash bag at her apartment complex in late 2013, as NBC-affiliate 11Alive informed. She weighed only 32 pounds when her dead body was discovered.
According to 11Alive, the father, Eman Moss testified that he burned Emani’s corps in an attempt to cremate her body. He was sentenced for his role in the death in 2015 and is serving a life sentence in jail.
Tiffany Moss stayed calm and unemotional in the court as the verdict was read. She also never offered any defense nor cross-examined any witnesses during her trial. The standby attorneys assigned to Moss would appeal the death penalty decision. If appeals fail and the sentence remains the same, Moss would be the third woman in Georgia to be executed, reported 11Alive.
