(Newser) – A mother and her boyfriend are in police custody after the woman's 3-year-old daughter was found dead at their home Saturday night in Napa, Calif. Police found little Kayleigh Slusher in her bed, and are treating her death as a homicide. They arrested Kayleigh's mother, 23-year-old Sara Krueger, and her boyfriend Ryan Warner at a train station in a neighboring city yesterday. The apartment manager claims when Warner moved in the couple became more isolated, had blankets over the windows, and Kayleigh was rarely seen playing outside. Both have been arrested in the past on drug-related charges.
