Sumpter Twp. couple wanted for murder of girl, 4, arrested in Georgia

Sumpter Twp. couple wanted for murder of girl, 4, arrested in Georgia

Federal authorities are joining police in southern MI in the search for a couple after a 4-year-old girl was found dead New Year's Day with "severe burns".

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.

Gabrielle Barrett had an upbeat personality and loved the movie Frozen, said her grandfather, Jerry Barrett, 47. It's unclear whether Fields is the child's father.

Gabby's grandmother, Deborah Barrett, described the little girl as a "ball of joy".

Officers arrived and found the girl's family members administering CPR, police said.

Police said Diaz and Fields are believed to be driving a black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with the MI plate DTR 1854.




Police records show that the incident isn't the first time they've had trouble at the home. Officers had to storm the home on May 20, 2016, after receiving a report of a gunman barricaded inside following a domestic assault.

"You could tell that he had a lot of control over [Diaz]", Ken Stambaugh, Fields' cousin, told the station.

Currently, US Marshals are offering a reward of up to $5000 leading to the arrest of Candice Diaz and Brad Fields.

Sumpter Township police said in a release that the fugitives were captured while driving near Lake Park, Georgia by agents of the U.S. Marshals Service in Macon Georgia, who worked in conjunction with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department. Fields fled the scene, but was later picked up on domestic violence charges.

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