Case dismissed against Fayetteville couple accused of killing infant

Posted January 15, 2013

— Cumberland County prosecutors have dismissed murder charges against a man and woman accused of killing their 5-month-old son in 2009.

Aubrey Moore, 38, and Cortney Moore, 27, were arrested in March 2010, three months after their son, Gabriel, died from what authorities initially said was from health complications due to a lack of medical care.

Assistant Cumberland County District Attorney Rita Cox said Tuesday that, after discussing the case with the child's physician and a pathologist, she determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue murder charges against the Moores.

    It took over two yeas to find out there was not enough evidence? Sounds like the sketchy shenanigans at the wake county court house.

    Law enforcement can falsify probable cause, file false charges against you, and then the district attorney will continue your case since they cannot prosecute and hope you will take a plea deal. No way are they taking your case to trial if you proved the law enforcement officers falsified probable cause, they will help the law enforcement agency keep that information covered up (right colon willoughby?)

    What do the authorities now say killed the child? A great deal is not being said. Like, what happens to the next child they make?
