Deasia Watkins, 20, has been arrested and charged with aggravated murder after beheading her three-month-old daughter, Jayniah Watkins. Watkins, who suffered from mental illness was not supposed to be left alone with her child unsupervised.  Around 6:00am at her aunt’s home, a five-year-old relative found the body of Jayniah, with multiple stab wounds. The head was detached from the body. Watkins was found in the bed covered in blood.Watkins’ aunt was asleep when the incident occurred.

Custody of the child was given to Watkins’ aunt following an incident in January when police were called to Watkins’ home for reportedly screaming and refusing to let her child go. The child’s father reported Watkins was “acting crazy lately, speaking of demons.” Watkins was allegedly under the influence of marijuana.

A neighbor, Sierra Johnson, reportedly “heard the mom screaming, Why are you doing this to me?  Johnson said she was nervous and was prompted to call someone.

Prosecutors will present the case to the grand jury, but will not offer the death penalty due to Watkins mental state.
