A desperate manhunt is underway Tuesday morning to find a woman and her boyfriend in connection with the death of a 4-year-old girl.
Fields was also charged as a habitual offender, police said.
The girl, identified as Gabby Barrett by Detroit Fox affiliate WJBK, was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, where she was pronounced dead.
Police officers who responded to the scene found the toddler with "obvious" burns on her arms and legs. According to WNEM, an autopsy found the girl had "multiple traumatic injuries" and "signs of Battered Child Syndrome (multiple injuries, multiple sites, multiple ages)".
Police say Diaz and Fields are driving a 2002 black Chevy Cavalier with the MI license plate of DTR1854.
On Monday, arrest warrants were approved by the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office charging Diaz and Fields with second-degree murder, felony murder, first-degree child abuse and torture, reported WDIV. The police have urged the people to call the U.S. Marshal Detroit Fugitive Apprehension team at 313-234-5656 or the Sumpter Township Police at 734-461-4833 ext. "When Gabby came over, she never had any marks or bruises on her", she said.
"She always had a smile on her face, loved to play", Deborah Barrett said.
Leah Barrett said her family is heartbroken over the loss, but feels better knowing Diaz and Fields have been found and arrested.
Along with discovering blood inside the home, an investigator noted this: "The smell in the house was quite foul due to old garbage, decaying food, uncleaned dishes, dog urine on the living room floor, dog feces in the children's room, a rabbit with unchanged wood shavings and general uncleanliness". Also, they noticed that Fields was in Diaz's vehicle in the parking lot of the police department - a violation of the no contact order issued because of the May 20 incident, according to a police report.
In 2006, Fields pleaded guilty to carrying an unauthorized concealed weapon and served a year of probation.
Gabrielle's aunt, Leah Barrett, 16, said her family never knew of the violence occuring at the mother's home.
