A criminal complaint filed by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office against Jamie Moore, the mother of a 14-year-old runaway who was missing for nearly a month, detailed horrific allegations of abuse in the East Orange household, according to two law enforcement officials familiar with the case.

Referring to the girl by her initials, the complaint said Jamie Moore endangered the teen’s welfare “specifically by stabbing the victim to her shoulder, causing a laceration that is still visible.”

The complaint continued, noting Jamie Moore also allegedly abused the teen by “spraying bleach in her eyes, pulling her braids out, striking her in the head with a frying pan, striking her with blue hangers, striking her with a broom handle.”

It also made references to the girl being hit with a Febreeze can.

The litany of alleged abuse also included a charge that the mother blocked the child’s air passages, at one point, “placing Jamie Moore’s knees on her neck and back, causing her to struggle to breathe and striking her repeatedly with hands and knees, in violation of NJSA 2C:24-4A (2).”
