(Northland's NewsCenter) --- A Wisconsin couple, charged with neglect that resulted in the death of their 3-year-old daughter, have turned themselves in.

According to our partners at Kare 11, the couple turned themselves into authorities around noon, Sunday.

An arrest warrant had been issued Friday for the couple, Thomas Williams and Jenna Danish.

When Burnett County Sheriff deputies arrived at their home to arrest them Friday night, no one answered the door.

According to court records, Danish Williams have been charged with felony child neglect resulting in the death of Reena Mae Williams.

In August dozens of friends and neighbors mounted a search for the little girl.

Her body was found in a canal hours after a neighbor says he spotted her walking in the street barefoot.

Danish and Williams each face up to 25 years in prison.
