According to WLWT, 20-year-old Deasia Watkins, of Cincinnati, Ohio, killed her 3-month-old baby by severing the child's head. Watkins has been charged with aggravated murder after.
The coroner said the baby suffered multiple traumas including multiple stab wounds on the face and head, a fractured right arm, and the child’s head had been severed from her body.
Officials say Watkins was found in a bed, covered in blood.
WLWT reports that the baby was ordered to be removed from her mother’s care and placed with an aunt days before her death.
The mother was reportedly mentally ill, and is now undergoing psychiatric evaluations.
