Mom, boyfriend sought in burning, beating death of 4-year-old girl

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

Police are searching for a woman and her boyfriend in connection with the death of a 4-year-old MI girl who was found with severe burns, WDIV reported.

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.

The couple face charges of felony murder, second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse and torture in the death of Gabby Barrett. Police say they are believed to be driving a black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with MI plates DTR1854.

The death was ruled a homicide two days later by the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner, according to police, with evidence of multiple traumatic injuries indicating child abuse.

The girl was found 10:43 a.m. Monday at the Rawsonville Woods Mobile Home community on Greenmeadow Drive.

Family members were administering CPR when officers arrived, police said. She was pronounced dead a short time later at an Ann Arbor hospital.

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 May 20, 2016, officers stormed the house after a report of a barricaded gunman after a domestic assault.

The disgusting home was littered with rubbish, rotten food and pet urine. Fields fled the scene, but was later picked up on domestic violence charges.

Both were charged, yet Child Protective Services weren't summoned until Diaz's four-year-old daughter suffered a horrific death. She told investigators she wanted to confess to owning a firearm with an "obliterated" serial number and an unregistered firearm, which were the weapons police recovered from the home.

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

"She was an overall unbelievable kid".

"We didn't know anything was going on".
