Almost three years after the death of her one-year-old daughter, Michele Suppes, 26, Ellsworth, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with felony murder and aggravated endangerment of a child in the daughter's death, according to a news release from the Ellsworth Police Department.

Suppes' daughter died June 26, 2010. Local authorities turned the investigation over to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Upon completion of the investigation, a report was submitted by the KBI to Ellsworth County Attorney Joe Shepack, who sent the case to the Kansas Attorney General's Office. The warrant for Michele Suppes was issued Tuesday. She was taken to the Ellsworth County Jail shortly before 5 p.m., according to Ellsworth County Sheriff Tracy Ploutz.
