LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Police reports show that a 10-year-old girl whose malnourished body was found in a suburban Atlanta trash bin had tried to run away from home last year and showed up at school years earlier with bruises and welts on her body.

Gwinnett County Police say Emani Moss' malnourished body was found Saturday. Her father, Eman Moss, and her stepmother, Tiffany Moss, have been charged with murder, concealing a body and child cruelty. It's unclear if they have attorneys.

Reports from the department show that a nurse found bruises on Emani's body in March 2010 and the girl tried running away in July 2012.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/Hy0nxg) that Georgia child-welfare officials signed a 2010 plea deal ordering Tiffany Moss to serve five years of probation for allegedly beating Emani.
