NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The woman wanted in connection with a child death investigation in North Las Vegas has surrendered to authorities.
Police say 38-year-old Kellie Phillips turned herself in late Tuesday afternoon.
Police sought Phillips, her five children and 39-year-old Jondrew Lachaux after authorities discovered a dead 3-year-old girl in their home on Wood Thrush Place last week.
Lachaux turned himself into authorities Monday. Police say Lachaux and Phillips left the 3-year-old girl in the care of the girl's 17-year-old half-sister. Police say Lachaux is the teen's stepfather.
Authorities arrested the 17-year-old girl for child abuse with substantial bodily harm when her 4-month-old child was taken to Sunrise Hospital in critical condition. When police investigated the alleged child abuse incident on Wood Thrush Place, they discovered the body of the 3-year-old girl.
