BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A woman described as a person of interest in the abduction of a 3-year-old Alabama girl is denying any involvement.
Attorneys for 29-year-old Derick Irisha Brown of Birmingham released a statement Friday saying she had no role in the kidnapping and hopes for the safe return of Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney.
The statement says the woman is "horrified" at the child's disappearance.
Brown and a man were arrested earlier this week after being described as persons of interest in the child's abduction from a birthday party last weekend.
Police say Brown and Patrick Stallworth are charged with crimes unrelated to the child's disappearance.
