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

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

U.S. Marshals are seeking help in their search for a couple wanted in the torture and killing of a 4-year-old girl, who died last week after suffering severe burns.

Police records also paint a chaotic scene at the couple's home where Fields was accused of assaulting Diaz, shooting her dog and then shooting himself.

Officers arrived at a mobile home park in Belleville on New Year's Day finding the four-year-old girl unresponsive.

Cops reported severe burns to the little girl's extremities. She was rushed to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, where she was pronounced dead.

The Washtenaw County (Mich.) Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide with evidence of multiple traumatic injuries and battered-child syndrome - meaning she suffered multiple injuries, at multiple sites, at multiple ages.

According to the police, the duo is believed to be driving in a black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with the MI license plate DTR 1854.

And now, Wayne County prosecutors have accused the girl's mother, 24-year-old Candice Diaz, and the mother's boyfriend, 28-year-old Brad Fields, of torturing and killing the girl, local police announced January 8. She died shortly thereafter.

URGENT: Manhunt underway for couple after 4-year-old girl found dead with 'severe burns'

Police say the home where she was found was full of animal waste and contained drugs and guns.

The story is still developing.

According to reports, Fields was arrested on May 20, 2016, and was charged with multiple counts of crime including firearm possession and domestic violence.

Michigan State Police and the state's Child Protective Services agency are investigating. "I know we may not have a lot of information at all, but, it just hurts", said Barrett.

Gabrielle Barrett had an upbeat personality and loved the movie Frozen, said her grandfather, Jerry Barrett, 47. Diaz pleaded guilty to weapons offenses and was given a probationary sentence.

Mugshots released Monday by Sumpter Township police officials appear to stem from charges filed against both Fields and Diaz following that incident.
