ALLIANCE - Three-year-old Hailey Miku was killed in Canton earlier this month, and her father and his girlfriend have both been charged.

Now, Hailey's family is dealing with more trouble as a woman was recently arrested for allegedly trying to solicit money for Hailey's funeral costs.

Hailey's aunt contacted Alliance police about a post she saw online. The aunt said the post was asking for money to pay for Hailey's headstone and funeral, but those costs have already been covered.

Hailey's aunt reached out to the woman through Facebook and set up a meeting.

Once they met, the aunt recorded the conversation they had. According to Alliance police, the woman was claiming to be Hailey's grandmother and even pronounced her name incorrectly.
