CINCINNATI – Authorities say an Ohio mother accused of decapitating her 3-month-old baby has been released from a hospital and is scheduled to appear in court.
The Hamilton County Prosecutor's office says 20- year-old Deasia Watkins was booked into the county jail Thursday after being released from a hospital where she'd been under guard. She's due in court Friday morning.
Watkins was charged with aggravated murder after her daughter's body was found Monday on a kitchen counter in an aunt's home.
Authorities say the 3-month old Jayniah Watkins had been decapitated and stabbed multiple times with a large chef's knife that was then placed in the baby's hand. Police found Watkins in bed covered with blood.
Watkins was previously forbidden to have contact with her daughter after being hospitalized for psychiatric problems.
