A mother from Cincinnati has been taken into custody and charged with aggravated murder after she allegedly beheaded her 3-month-old daughter.
According to ABC 2 News and police sources, Deasia Watkins was charged after authorities discovered the gruesome murder scene in her home yesterday evening.
The site reports:
Cincinnati Police said they responded to the 5900 block of Waldway Lane at about 6 a.m. for a report of a deceased infant. Officers said they found the 3-month-old dead inside the home.
Early investigation showed the baby suffered “multiple traumas” according to Hamilton County coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco. The coroner said Monday it remains unclear if Watkins acted alone.
“It’s days like this when you really wonder how much evil there is in the world and how we’re fighting it,” Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco said. “We’re trying to do right by this child. We’re trying to bring justice for this baby.”
The investigation is being handled by the Cincinnati Police Department, Homicide Unit, as well as the coroner’s office.
