From the Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office:
Tanasha Siena, of Edgewood, Maryland, was sentenced to serve the maximum of 50 years in prison. She had been found guilty of Second Degree Murder and Use of a Handgun in the Commission of a Crime of Violence by a Harford County jury on April 21, 2015. The victim, George Moore, had lived with Ms. Siena and their two children on Mahonia Way in Edgewood.
On July 3, 2015, Judge Yolanda M. Curtin of the Circuit Court for Harford County heard statements from several members of Mr. Moore’s family.
His mother Juanita Moore wrote, “I pray every day that I will be able to help his children. I want to stay healthy so that I can give them the love that their parents can’t give them now. When I look at his children, I see him in them. They are loving children and always ready to help someone.”
His sister, Georgette Moore Milton wrote,“Our family has been cheated. His children have been cheated. We will never see our little brother get married, see his smile or hear his laughter again. His sons will not have their father to guide them into manhood.”
Mr. Moore had been employed as an electrical engineer for NASA at the time of his death, and was involved in the development of research satellites. His co-workers at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD presented a statement as well.
“Not only did the Moore family suffer the loss of their son,brother, uncle, and father, but our country suffered the loss of a very gifted engineer whose talents contributed to scientific research that benefited each and every one of us,” stated Deputy State’s Attorney Diane Adkins Tobin during the sentencing hearing.
The case was prosecuted by the Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office, Deputy State’s Attorney Diane Adkins Tobin and Assistant State’s Attorney Alison M. Healey,and was investigated by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.
