A Wayne County couple wanted in the murder of a 4-year-old girl has been captured by federal authorities.

Diaz told cops Fields punched her and smashed her phone before turning the gun on himself and blowing a whole in his leg, shouting "see if you can outrun these bullets", according to the report.

On the morning of New Year's Day, police responded to a report of an unresponsive girl at a home in the Rawsonville Woods Mobile Home Community in Sumpter Township, Mich., about 30 miles southwest of Detroit. Police said the girl was suffering from severe burns on her body.

Upon reaching the spot, they found the severely burnt victim and rushed her to Saint Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor.

The girl's death was ruled a homicide two days later, after an autopsy which also revealed additional traumatic injuries and evidence of Battered Child Syndrome.

A manhunt is underway for the couple, who may be in a black 2002 Chevy Cavalier, with MI license plate number, DTR 1854.

MI police charged Candice Diaz and Brad Fields in the death of Diaz's four-year-old daughter.

U.S. Marshals located and arrested Brad E. Fields, 28, and girlfriend Candice R. Diaz, 24, about 3:55 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9 near Lake Park, Georgia, according to Sumpter Township police. She died shortly thereafter.


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

"She didn't have to pass the way she did, but I hope we get justice for her really soon", Barrett said. Police said he then fled the home and was later arrested on domestic violence charges.

The story is still developing. WDIV reported that Diaz was booked on weapons charges at that time.

Gabrielle Barrett had an upbeat personality and loved the movie Frozen, said her grandfather, Jerry Barrett, 47.

The police have appealed to any member of the public with information as to the whereabouts of Diaz and Fields to come forward.

A GoFundMe page initially set up to help her family bury her has since been removed, but a second one has been established.
