The 12-year-old brother of 8-year-old Leila Fowler has been arrested in her death, Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz announced at a press conference Saturday evening.

Deputies arrested the boy at 5:10 p.m., Kuntz said. The brief press conference was attended by a large crowd of area residents and media, and there was scattered applause as Kuntz concluded his remarks.

Leila was fatally stabbed April 27 in her home in a rural Rancho Calaveras neighborhood, about 30 miles east of Stockton
