Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- A candlelight vigil is planned for 10-year-old Emani Moss, whose emaciated and burned body was found in a trash bin.

WXIA-TV reports (http://on.11alive.com/HRxhZY) that the vigil is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church on Flat Shoals Parkway in the Decatur area of DeKalb County.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter says he may request the death penalty for the girl's parents. The girl's father, Eman Moss, and her stepmother, Tiffany Moss, face murder and child cruelty charges.

Gwinnett County police have said they believe the girl was starved to death. Her body was found in a trash bin at a Lawrenceville apartment complex Nov. 2.
