Mother accused of starving toddler daughter to death to appear in court

A Gwinnett County mother accused of starving her 2-year-old to death is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.

Devon Moon is charged with child cruelty and felony murder.

Moon called 911 last month and said her 2-year-old was not moving. By the time emergency crews arrived at her apartment on Paxton Road, the little girl was dead.

Police said the child weighed just 14 pounds when she died. She was only a few weeks away from turning three.
