Family handout

A Daytona Beach, Florida mom was fatally stabbed and her apartment was set on fire with her three young children inside.

The fire was set after 11 p.m. Monday at the Countryside Apartments on Beville Road. Police and firefighters responded to a 911 call around 11:35 p.m. Monday.

Fire crews rushed inside the burning apartment and found two children, ages 4 and 5, suffering from smoke inhalation. They were transported to a nearby hospital.

First responders found the body of the children’s mother, Denjah “Nickie” Moore, 30, who died from multiple stab wounds.

“The mother deceased inside the residence was not from the fire so we are working that as a homicide,” Daytona Beach police Deputy Chief Jennifer Whittet said.

Moore’s 1-year-old infant was found in full cardiac arrest in a crib.

“The youngest child, just under the age of 1, was worked on for quite sometime and was pronounced deceased at the hospital,” Whittet said.

Lt. Antwan Lewis with the Daytona Beach Fire Department said the fire was intentionally set.

“This is a horrific incident,” Daytona Beach Poice Chief Jakari Young. “We are literally two days out from a holiday that centers around family, and this is what we’re here dealing with.”

Moore’s family members were too distraught to speak to a reporter at the scene.

They did release a statement to Channel 9 News:

“Denjah was a loving and devoted mother of 3. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for her kids. And she enjoyed doing hair and hanging out with her sister and best friend.”
