Police have arrested a cousin in connection with the death of a 5-year-old Kenneth White of Berne.

Tiffany VanAlstyne, 19, is now charged with second-degree murder.

Police had initially issued an AMBER Alert on Thursday, after VanAlstyne told them the boy had been kidnapped by two masked men. However, they say as they proceeded with an investigation, things began to not match up.
