AMBER Alert for 3-year-old girl issued out of Worcester

Members of MA area law enforcement agencies were on the lookout for the vehicle, the woman, and the 3-year-old girl as an Amber Alert had been issued the day before when the woman threatened to harm her daughter.

Police initially reported that she took her daughter from her home on Greenwood Street in Worcester around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Lee-Ann Rickheit is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday, August 10th on charges including attempted murder.

Rickheit was located after members of the State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section developed information indicating that she previously visited the wooded area where she was found. State Police confirmed that Rikheit has a history in the area of Charlton.

"VFAS Trooper Keller Williams smashed a window to the vehicle and troopers removed the child and Rickheit from the auto", State Police explained in a statement. "The charges will reflect Rickheit's actions in fleeing with the child, as well as evidence observed and recovered during her capture".

Ella was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center and is reportedly is doing well.

While being taken to the hospital, Rickheit said inside the ambulance that she wanted to kill herself because "no one cares about me" and said that she intentionally blocked the tailpipe for "a couple of hours" before she was found, court documents read.

Rickheit and the child "were either sleeping or unconscious" and both were transported to area hospitals to be evaluated.
