Police said a 17-year-old was taken into custody Sunday after a 9-year-old girl was found dead this weekend in a Todd County, Ky., field.
The juvenile has been charged with murder and resisting arrest after Amy R. Dye, 9, was found dead in a field early Saturday morning.
KSP officers responded to the scene on Dogwood Lane near Lester Chapel Road between Trenton and Guthrie late Friday night, according to Recke.

On Saturday, at about 12:21 a.m., KSP was contacted by Todd County officials, advising that the child had been located and was dead.
At about 3:30 a.m., Todd County deputies drove a man and woman to Trenton City Hall for questioning. Police would not identify them, however they confirmed they questioned family members, which they said is routine for a homicide investigation.
The victim's family told Channel 4 that the child was adopted by her aunt.
