Tiffany Moss: The sole female inmate on Georgia’s death row following conviction for murdering her daughter

Out of the 37 individuals currently on death row in Georgia, only one is a woman.

Tiffany Moss made the unconventional decision to represent herself in the capital case and opted not to mount any defense. She chose not to question any of the witnesses who testified against her and refrained from giving an opening statement or a closing argument.

“Who would even consider devising or carrying out a plan to deprive a 10-year-old child of food until they perish?” Porter passionately questioned the jury. ” … There are certain crimes that are incredibly abhorrent, so monstrous, that the only suitable retribution is the forfeiture of one’s own life. Justice requires the rightful recompense.”

In August 2015, Emani’s father, Eman Moss, admitted his involvement in Emani’s death and was given a life sentence without the chance of parole. As part of his plea agreement, Moss agreed to provide testimony against his wife.

Kelly Renee Gissendaner, the last woman to be executed in Georgia, was found guilty of masterminding her husband Douglas Gissendaner’s murder in 1997.

According to the Death Penalty Information Center, she became the first woman executed in Georgia since 1945. Additionally, she is the only individual in Georgia to be executed for a murder they did not directly commit since the reinstatement of the death penalty by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1976.
