Police in Sumpter Township, Michigan, is on the lookout for a couple after the woman's four-year-old daughter was found dead in a house on New Year's Day.

According to the police, the deceased, Gabby Barrett, had severe burns and succumbed to her injuries.

The federal authorities and the local police have together launched a manhunt for Candice Renea Diaz, 24, and Brad Edward Fields, 28.

According to the information provided by the police on their Facebook page, they responded to a 911 call about an unresponsive four-year-old girl in a house on Greenmeadow Drive, inside the Rawsonville Woods Mobile Home Community.

Upon reaching the spot, they found the severely burnt victim and rushed her to Saint Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor. However, she was declared dead upon arrival.

The Washtenaw County Medical Examiner ruled the girl’s death as a homicide since there was enough evidence of multiple injuries and signs of battery on the victim's body.

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office on Monday approved the arrest warrants against the victim's mother and her boyfriend who the police suspect of murdering the girl. The prosecutor said the couple was charged with multiple counts of crime including second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse, and torture. Fields was also charged as a habitual offender.

According to the police, the duo is believed to be driving in a black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with the Michigan license plate DTR 1854. 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. 305 if they have any information about the duo or about the car they were driving in.

Mourning the little girl’s death Barrett’s father, Kyle Barrett told Fox 2: “She didn't have to pass the way she did but I hope we get justice for her really soon. I know we may not have a lot of information at all, but, it just hurts.”

Barrett’s grandmother, Deborah Barret said: “She was a ball of joy. She always had a smile on her face, loved to play. She would run around the house when we had her always with a big ole smile on her face,” adding, “Keep flying, Gabby. Keep flying. We're watching you and we love you.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up by the victim's kin to raise funds for her funeral. In a span of 12 hours, about $953 has been collected.

This is not the first time Diaz and Fields have been in trouble.

According to reports, Fields was arrested on May 20, 2016, and was charged with multiple counts of crime including firearm possession and domestic violence. Three days later, Diaz was also charged in Wayne County for possession of firearm, altering identification, and possession of prescription forms.
