CINCINNATI, OH — A mother is under arrest for the death of her own 3-month-old daughter named Janiyah. Police found the deceased baby girl inside her Cincinnati home, according to a WCPO-TV report.
Watkins was taken into custody at around 6am. The deceased child suffered “multiple traumas” according to Hamilton County coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco. The coroner said Monday it is not clear if Watkins acted alone.

Watkins lost custody of the child once before, according to WKRC-TV. She was reportedly mentally ill. She is currently undergoing a mental health evaluation. It is not clear if she will make her first court appearance.

“Priority number one is to make sure that we get justice for this baby,” Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco tells WKRC-TV.

The investigation is ongoing.

Ohio Mother Charged After Allegedly Beheading Her 3-Month-Old Daughter

A Cincinnati, Ohio mother has been charged with aggravated murder after she allegedly decapitated her own 3-month-old daughter, according to a report.

Deasia Watkins, 20, was taken into custody after Cincinnati officers found the body of Janiyah Watkins inside a home Monday around 6 a.m., police told television station WCPO.

The baby had been beheaded, according to Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco

“There were multiple stab wounds to the right side of the (baby’s) face and head,” Sammarco told the station. “(The baby had) a fractured right arm … and the head was severed from the body.”

Sammarco described it as a “pretty horrific sight.”

Just 10 days before her death, baby Janiyah had been taken from her mother and placed in the custody of Job and Family Services, according to the station.

The decision to remove the infant from her mother’s care came after Hamilton County prosecutors filed a complaint a week earlier stating that Janiyah was being neglected.

Police had initially gone to Watkins’ apartment on Jan. 25 after reports of screaming and allegedly found the mother high on marijuana and “speaking in tongues,” WCPO reported.

The baby was in her arms at the time, and police had to forcefully remove Janiyah. After the infant was taken away from her, Watkins started “speaking with demons,” according to the complaint.

It was not immediately known how the baby ended up back with Watkins before her death.

Watkins has been hospitalized, the station reported.
