Buffalo Co. woman arrested in death of 4-year-old


A South Dakota woman has been arrested in connection with the death of a 4-year-old child.
Attorney General Marty Jackley issued charges Friday against 22-year-old Donika Gonzalez of Buffalo County's Gann Valley. 
State Division of Criminal Investigation spokeswoman Sara Rabern declined to say whether Gonzalez is related to the child, nor would she say how officials believe the child died. An autopsy is under way.

Rabern says the child died Thursday night in Gann Valley. Gonzalez is charged with one count of felony abuse or cruelty to a minor, a class 3 felony with a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison. An attorney for Gonzalez could not immediately be located by The Associated Press. 
Gann Valley is about an hour west of Mitchell in central South Dakota.
