 LAKE PARK, GA (WALB) - A Michigan couple wanted for the murder of a 4-year-old has been arrested in South Georgia.

Michigan police charged Candice Diaz and Brad Fields in the death of Diaz's four-year-old daughter.

The couple was arrested Tuesday afternoon off I-75 in Lake Park.

The investigation began after police responded to the home in Sumpter Township and the child wasn't breathing.

She later died at the hospital.

The coroner ruled the death a homicide due to signs of battered child syndrome. 

Both Diaz and Fields are being charged with murder.
