There is now a suspect in the death of 8-year-old Leila Fowler

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -  

There's now a suspect in the death of eight-year-old Leila Fowler.

Police arrested the young girl's 12-year-old brother today.

Officials say he will be charged with homicide.

Fowler's brother originally told investigators he found his sister stabbed to death in the family's northern California home last month.

The boy also said he saw an intruder leave their home.

Fowler's death then triggered a massive manhunt in the small community of valley springs.
