Looks like it might have been a variegated Red-twig Dogwood. Please let us know what part of the world you are in, so we will have another clue as to the plant's ID.

I would slip it out of the pot and take a look at the root ball. It may be that it just got too dried out during the winter, and a good soak in a bucket might revive it. But I'm not hopeful.

Depending on the leaf size, there are several options.. Getting a little more info would be helpful.. Is it a house plant? If so, I would guess Ficus benjamina 'Variegata' if the leaves are a couple of inches long.. But it looks similar to some of the Pittosporum tenuifolium hybrids like 'Marjorie Channon'.. Hard to tell from your pictures, but the Pitts have black stems on the newer growth. In any case, it looks like the plant dried out.

It does not have opposite leaves which rules our Cornus and Euonymus.
From the black twigs I would suggest it is Pittosporum sp.
Maybe one such as Pittosporum tenuifolium variegatum or similar.
