Ohio Mom Accused of Beheading 3-Month-Old Daughter

A 20-year-old Cincinnati woman accused of decapitating her 3-month-old daughter had been suffering from postpartum psychosis and remains under psychiatric evaluation, according to court documents, NBC News reported. Deasia Watkins was known to have been suffering from mental illness and was not supposed to be near the girl unsupervised, Hamilton County prosecutors said. Court documents obtained by NBC News say Watkins had been diagnosed with postpartum psychosis following an incident in January when police were called to the home about Watkins screaming and refusing to let her baby go.
