Denise Marie Wilder, who police said was drunk when authorities found her daughter dead in a home in Roseville last night, is suspected of killing 2-year-old McKinley Wilder. Authorities are not saying how the little girl died.
At about 5 p.m. Wednesday, police and fire personnel responded to the home in the 300 block of Diamond Oaks Road to a report of a child not breathing. The home belongs to the child's grandparents who were out of town.
A family friend had gone to the home looking for the Denise Wilder. When the little girl was found to be unresponsive, the friend called police.
Wilder's 5-year-old daughter was also at the home. She was initially released to Child Protective Services but has been reunited with her family.
A police press release said that due to suspicious circumstances, detectives arrested Wilder on suspicion of homicide and child endangerment. The investigation is on-going and the cause of the child's death is pending an autopsy.
