Manhunt underway for mother, boyfriend after girl, 4, burned to death

Authorities need the public's help tracking down a man and woman accused in the death of a four-year-old girl found severely burned in MI, according to KTLA sister station WNEM. The police have urged the people to call the U.S. Marshal Detroit Fugitive Apprehension team at 313-234-5656 or the Sumpter Township Police at 734-461-4833 ext.

The investigation began after police responded to the home in Sumpter Township and the child wasn't breathing.

A MI couple wanted in the death of a four-year-old girl have been captured, according to WXYZ out of Detroit.

The girl was later identified as Gabrielle Barrett.

Candice Renea Diaz, 24, and Brad Edward Fields, 28, are charged with felony murder, murder, child abuse and torture.

Police received a 911 call about a 4-year-old girl who was unresponsive on January 1 at about 10:30 a.m., the station reported.

When officers arrived, they found family members performing CPR on the child.

Gabby was rushed to St Joseph Mercy Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Washtenaw County Medical Examiner ruled the girl's death as a homicide since there was enough evidence of multiple injuries and signs of battery on the victim's body.

Police say Fields ran away from the home.

According to police, they are searching for 24-year-old Candice Diaz and 28-year-old Brad Fields.

The man involved in the incident was arrested and charged with domestic violence. An autopsy found the girl died from traumatic injuries and had been beaten over a period of time.

In 2006, Fields pleaded guilty to carrying an unauthorized concealed weapon and served a year of probation.

A manhunt is underway for a MI couple accused of killing and torturing a young child.

No one from CPS was immediately available for comment. "I know we may not have a lot of information at all, but, it just hurts", said Barrett.

Gabby was found at the home of her mother and her partner January 1, according to the Daily Mail. She also said he shot her dog and shot himself in the leg.
