A 22-year-old Bemidji woman was arrested Friday in connection to the freezing death of a 6-year-old girl in February.

Rachel Downer is expected to be charged today with second-degree manslaughter and felony neglect, according to a press release from the Bemidji Police Department. Downer is the cousin of Mercedes Mayfield, who was found dead outside her apartment complex early on the morning of February 27, when the wind chills dipped to forty below. A preliminary autopsy report from the St. Paul medical examiner showed that Mayfield had died of hypothermia.
