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

Diaz and Fields are facing murder, torture and child abuse charges.

Investigators said they believe the couple is driving in a black, 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with MI license plate DTR1854.

A postmortem uncovered signs of Battered Child Syndrome, denoting the girl had likely suffered egregious abuse for an extended period of time.

Sumpter Township police officials said last week officers were called to a residence on Greenmeadow Drive in the Rawsonville Woods Mobile Home Community on Rawsonville Road near Willow Road to respond to reports of an unresponsive 4-year-old girl.

"Upon arrival, CPR was being administered by family members and officers found the child suffering from severe burns about her extremities", according to a news release. She had severe burns to her body and was pronounced dead at an Ann Arbor Hospital.

According to the report, Diaz told cops her boyfriend was mentally ill.

Police say Fields ran away from the home. Fields fled the scene, but was later picked up on domestic violence charges. The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office later issued a warrant for the arrest of Diaz and Fields, according to police.

Police said the woman claimed she owned weapons that had been confiscated, including one that had the serial number filed off it. 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. His first time there was Sunday night, for a candlelight vigil.
