Police Hunt Couple Accused Of Murdering 4-Year-Old

A MI couple wanted for the murder of a 4-year-old has been arrested in South Georgia.

Gabby's father and grandparents stated that Diaz had custody of the 4-year-old girl when she died. She was rushed to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, where she was pronounced dead.

Two days later, the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner ruled the child's death a homicide with evidence of multiple traumatic injuries and signs of Battered Child Syndrome.

A manhunt is underway for Diaz and Fields, and they are believed to be driving a black 2002 Chevy Cavalier bearing MI license plate DTR 1854, pictured below.

Wayne County prosecutors have charged Candice Diaz, 24, the little girl's mother, and Brad Edward Fields, 28, with the preschooler's stomach-turning murder.

Police records show that Diaz told investigators that Fields had beat her and shot her dog before shooting himself in a suicidal outburst, the news station reported.

MI police are on the hunt for 22 year old woman, Candice Renea Diaz and her 28 year old boyfriend, Brad Edward Fields after the woman's four-year-old daughter was found suffering from severe burns on New Year's Day and later dying from her injuries.

As police search for the child's parents, not much information about the investigation has been released.

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

A police news release stated that officers and paramedics went to the couple's mobile home on New Year's Day following a 911 call reporting an unresponsive child. "I know we may not have a lot of information at all, but, it just hurts", said Barrett.

Barrett's grandmother, Deborah Barret said: "She was a ball of joy".

A GoFundMe page has been set up by the victim's kin to raise funds for her funeral. She always had a smile on her face, loved to play.

Police say Fields ran away from the home.
