Woman beheads 3 month old daughter. Should she be charged with murder or treated for postpartum depression
Is this a case of cold blooded murder or is she suffering from postpartum depression?
Mother, 20, who ‘beheaded her three-month-old daughter’ leaves hospital for first court appearance
Deasia Watkins, 20, appeared before a judge in Hamilton County, Ohio on Friday morning and her bond was set at $500,000
She ‘stabbed and beheaded her daughter Janiyah at her aunt’s home in College Hill on Monday before going to bed’
Janiyah had been placed in the aunt’s custody after Watkins was hospitalized for psychiatric problems in January

Family members said that the 20-year-old had been suffering from post-partum depression and was ‘speaking of demons’
