Plano Police announced Tuesday that they've made an arrest in the recent death of a 2-year-old girl.
Melinda Lynn Muniz, 25, has been charged with capital murder in the death of Grace Lillian Ford, police say. Muniz is reportedly the fiancée of Ford's father.
Ford was found unconscious at an apartment earlier this month and was transported to a local hospital for treatment, where she was declared brain-dead three days later.
A fundraising page for Ford said her face was found duct-taped shut.
Police said they got a welfare concern call from the girl's father on Jan. 9 about 1:40 p.m. from his apartment in the 1500 block of J Place.
Police say that on Jan. 22, the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office ruled Ford's death as a homicide.
