Carmack is now being held at Grant County Jail. She is in the Grant County Jail on charges of murder, strangulation, neglect of a dependent, and domestic battery. "All the scenarios are on the table and we are remaining optimistic until we have evidence to believe otherwise".

Skylea Rayn Carmack was reported missing Saturday evening.
