A 43-year-old woman in Louisiana was arrested for allegedly killing her boyfriend’s 6-year-old daughter, stuffing the child’s remains into a large plastic bucket, then using a wagon to transport and drop off the bucket at the home of the victim’s mother. Hannah Landon was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of young Bella Fontenelle, authorities announced.

According to a press release from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, Bella’s father on Wednesday morning awoke to find his daughter and girlfriend were both missing from his home in Harahan, about 10 miles west of New Orleans. An older male child was still in the home and unharmed, JPSO said.

The father at about 7:30 a.m. arrived at the Harahan Police Station and reported the two missing. Approximately 15 minutes later, officers arrived at the father’s home on Donelon Drive and began investigating the whereabouts of the missing woman and child.

At about 8:20 a.m., the investigation moved to the home of Bella’s biological mother, located on Sedgefield Drive, which is only around the corner and less than two blocks away from Bella’s father’s residence.

“At the Sedgefield location, officers discovered the victim’s remains inside a large plastic bucket in the front yard,” the release states. “The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.”
