Neighbors remembered Mosby as cheerful. She wanted to retire to Florida.
“We extend our deepest condolences to Cynthia Mosby’s family,” said Canton Director of Police Services Chad Baugh. “Our police officers and detectives have worked tirelessly to identify the tragic circumstances of her death. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy’s analysis and charging decisions were invaluable following this challenging set of facts.”
Prosecutors are basically treating the 14-year-old as a juvenile, so they did not identify her. Her legal situation may change if she’s convicted. The judge would have the option to sentence her as an adult, or under some sort of mixed punishment.
“In this case the 14-year-old girl is being adult designated because upon conviction it gives the judge the most flexibility during sentencing to provide options for rehabilitation of this very troubled youth,” said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.
The teenager faces a charge of first-degree murder. She is set to be evaluated for competency and criminal responsibility. A court hearing is set for April 15.
