    The child was removed from the mother and placed with a relative. Relative allowed mother to move in. Caretha White is a different relative, not the one the child was placed with. I think it's DCF policy to try and place kids with relatives first. And here is the outcome in this case.

    "Although Watkins was ordered to stay away from her daughter, an aunt who received custody allowed Watkins to live with her, said Prosecutor Joe Deters."

    Looks like the aunt felt sorry for the mother. Wonder how she feels now? Poor child who found the baby!

    In the 911 call the Aunt says something like:
    "The baby is 3 month... OMG I'm going to jail."

    So the Aunt knew she had done something wrong immediately. :twocents:

    And after seeing the baby's mutilated body, all the aunt can think about is herself??!!! She should go to jail, IMO.

    I had a feeling this could be post-Partum psychosis. What a tragedy.

    A judge has ordered the 20-year-old woman charged with decapitating her baby to undergo treatment at a mental health facility after an initial evaluation showed she is not competent to stand trial.

    However, DeAsia Watkins can be rehabilitated with treatment, the evaluation said, and prosecutors want her to go to trial eventually.

    From the same article:

    <snipped>
    After Janiyah was born, Watkins was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold at Deaconess Hospital, court records show. Watkins was diagnosed with post-partum psychosis, a condition characterized by the onset of psychotic behavior following childbirth.

    Doctors prescribed Watkins an antipsychotic medication called Risperdal as treatment, but it was unclear whether she took it.

    CINCINNATI — The 20-year-old mother accused of decapitating her infant daughter was found competent to stand trial Wednesday.

    According to Triffon Callos with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office, Deasia Watkins will stand trial, charged with aggravated murder in connection with the death of 3-month-old Janiyah Watkins.

    According to a coroner’s report, the infant sustained multiple stab wounds to the right side of her face and head, and her “head was severed from her body."

    In the days following Janiyah’s death, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters called the case “one of the most disturbing…[he’s] ever seen in [his] life.”

    According to court records, Watkins was diagnosed with post-partum psychosis, a condition characterized by the onset of psychotic behavior after childbirth, shortly after Janiyah’s birth last December.

    "Since her arrest, Watkins has been getting psychological evaluations every few months to determine if she's sane.
    At the beginning of the investigation, she was found incompetent to stand trial, but after another test, a judge reversed the court's decision.
    Judge Kubicki set a trial date of October 24. She will report to court one more time before then on June 28"

    Yes it is unbelievably sad. So many sad cases here. Just when I think I have heard it all and nothing will ever shock me again, I get shocked again.
