  • Manhunt Underway for Mom, Boyfriend in Death of 4-Year-Old Michigan Girl Found Severely Burned

A fugitive MI mother and her boyfriend accused of torturing and killing the woman's four-year-old daughter were arrested in Georgia Tuesday.

According to WXYZ-TV in Detroit, U.S. Marshals are offering up to $5,000 for anyone with information that leads to the direct arrest of Candice R. Diaz, 24, and Brad E. Fields, 28.

Police responded to a 911 call around 10:45 a.m. on January 1 for an unresponsive 4-year-old girl.

Police said that the home where the girl was found with serious scald wounds was full of animal waste and contained guns and drugs. 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 as a homicide with evidence of multiple traumatic injuries and signs of Battered Child Syndrome. Fields is also charged as a habitual offender.

Police launched a manhunt for Diaz and Fields, who have been charged with felony murder, second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse and torture, police said.
