Woman due to give birth in Harford jail

January 11, 2008|By Madison Park

A 26-year-old Abingdon woman who was charged with second-degree murder in the death of her infant son is expected to give birth in a couple of months, her attorney said.

Giovanna Mari Mosely, who is described as mentally disabled, has been at the Harford County Detention Center since August after being denied bond.

Last year, Mosely was indicted by a Harford County grand jury along with her husband, Richard Mosely, and their roommate Daniel Reilly. She was accused of watching as the two men shook her 7-week-old son, Seth. She also faces charges of first-degree child abuse resulting in death and second-degree child abuse.

Mosely was pregnant with her and her husband's second child before she was arrested, said Paul R. Kramer, her attorney. Mosely rested her handcuffed hands on her protruding belly and spoke with her two attorneys yesterday during a pretrial conference.

The family is making arrangements for the baby, Kramer said. Mosely's trial date is scheduled for Feb. 4, although Kramer said they were trying to resolve the matter.

Pregnant women remain at the detention center and are taken to the hospital under the supervision of a correctional officer.
