Woman decapitates 2-year-old son, places head in the freezer (VIDEO)

A woman with a history of mental problems has just been found barricaded in her apartment. After a heated argument with a man that is believed to be her boyfriend, police officers in Philadelphia were able to burst into her apartment, only to find that the woman stabbed herself in the neck after apparently decapitating her 2-year-old child and stuffing the head inside of a refrigerator.

I don't think there are words enough in the English language (or Spanish, for that matter) to describe just how horrified I am over this news. I mean, honestly, how can anyone do this to their own child?

The woman in question, who police identified as 33-year-old Chevonne Thomas to MyFoxPhilly.com, did not have custody of son Zahree Thomas after she admitted to smoking marijuana laced with PCP, leaving the boy unattended in a bar, and then blacking out in a park back in 2010.

Yet, somehow, she had the boy with her on this fateful night when police responded to a domestic dispute call. After decapitating her son, she called 911 and first accused her boyfriend of stabbing the child before admitting "I did it", and finally stabbed herself when police showed up at her house.

The incident has left me, well, shaking. It is absolutely, positively one of the most horrifying things I have EVER heard and has left me wondering: HOW did this woman get her son back, with her history of child neglect and mental problems?! The second-saddest part of the story is that the boy's father, who arrived at the scene just before the medical examiners brought the bodies out of the apartment, and the woman's other child now have to deal with the very disturbing deaths. Seriously, I don't know how they will do it.
