The parents of Emani Moss have pleaded not guilty in the 10-year-old girl’s death late last year.

Eman Giovanni Moss and Tiffany Nicole Moss are facing the death penalty for the death of Emani, whose burned and malnourished body was found in a trash can at the Coventry Pointe apartment complex in Lawrenceville in early November, 2013.

The couple entered their pleas Friday in Gwinnett County superior court, the Gwinnett Daily News reported.

Their charges include felony murder, first-degree cruelty to children and concealing a death.

Detectives believe the girl’s body was burned after she died in an effort to hide the crime. She may have been dead for several days before her body was discovered.

Investigators say there were signs of abuse. The young girl was denied food for several days before she died and she was severely underweight.
