Preliminary evidence indicates the girl was strangled. Police say an autopsy will verify the cause of death.
Police arrested Skylea’s stepmother, 34-year-old Amanda Carmack on Wednesday morning around 4:30 a.m. in connection with the girl’s death. She faces preliminary charges of murder, neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury, strangulation, and domestic battery resulting in serious bodily injury.

Skylea’s father, Kevin Carmack, who initially thought his daughter had run away, said he left Skylea at home with Amanda and six other children when he went to work on Saturday.
Police say evidence shows Amanda strangled her between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Amanda called police to report her missing around 9 p.m.
Police say a “conglomerate of evidence” led them to arrest Amanda, and they believe she is the only person involved in the murder. They have no other suspects at this time.
The six other children who were in the home are now with Child Protective Services.
“There’s no rationale” for killing a 10-year-old girl, Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum said. “That’s just cowardice.”
