Police observed face and neck injuries as well as numerous bruises, abrasions and scrapes on the victim at the scene. The victim was transported to a Rockford hospital to be treated.  During the follow up investigation Detectives learned that Moore grabbed and strangled the victim to the point where she could no longer breathe.  Moore also battered the victim with a metal broom all over her body, head and legs.
