Just released dash cam footage shows the moment a Michigan couple named responsible in the ‘worst child abuse death’ a medical examiner has seen in decades were captured.

Sumpter Township mother Candice Diaz, 24, and her boyfriend, Brad Fields, 28, were charged Saturday in the murder of Diaz’s four-year-old daughter, Gabrielle Barrett.

The video shows the couple being arrested Tuesday after they were tracked down on a highway in Lake Park, Georgia.

The ‘mentally ill’ pair are accused in the homicide of the child – who died January 1 after she was left in a burning bath while her mother was allegedly making pancakes in the next room.

The child was found by police New Year’s Day in the bathroom of a mobile home, where her seared skin was seen in the drain and her big toe fell off from the alleged abuse, officials said.
