We are learning more information about that Brenham babysitter accused of murdering a 2-year-old girl she was caring for.
The babysitter, Berny Figueroa, 28, has been on the run, and now the FBI and Customs and Immigration are joining in the hunt.
An interstate flight warrant has been issued for Figueroa.
Officials tell us that the assistance of federal authorities is necessary since she may not be in the state.
Figueroa is accused of striking 2-year-old Alexia Lopez, causing her intestines to separate. The former babysitter is charged with capital murder.
