The father and stepmother of a 10-year-old girl who allegedly died at their hands appeared in a Gwinnett County court Friday.
Emani Moss was found dead, her body burned, in a dumpster the morning of Nov. 2, police said. Her father, Eman Moss, and her stepmother, Tiffany Moss, have been charged in connection with the death and with trying to hide the body.
In court Friday, the attorneys for both adults entered not guilty pleas for their clients, according to Channel 2 Action News.
“It was hard sitting there today and seeing him because what I see is my little boy,” Robin Moss, Eman Moss’ mother told Channel 2.
