CONTRIBUTED PHOTO: MULTNOMAH COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE - Chandra Ilene Rose, the live-in girlfriend of the victims father, was arrested in connection with the death of a 10-year-old Fairview girl.

On Sunday, police arrested 34-year-old Chandra Ilene Rose, the live-in girlfriend of the victim's father, on two counts of criminal mistreatment and one count of reckless endangerment. Rose is currently lodged in the Multnomah County Jail.

Rose's three children, who were also living in the home, have been taken into protective custody.

Police discovered Miranda Crockett's body at the Kings Garden Apartments, in the 2700 block of Northeast 207th Avenue, Fairview, while her father was at work. Rose was at the apartment watching Crockett.

“The family is devastated,” Crockett's grandfather said. “We don't know anything right now, and that's what makes it so difficult.”

Family and friends set up an online account to pay for Crockett's funeral expenses, which the family cannot afford, her grandfather said.

Fairview Police Chief Ken Johnson said more information will be released in the coming days.
