A mother was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly slitting the throat of her 3-month-old baby in a cemetery, police in Spain said.

La Villa de Don Fabrique police said that they have arrested the 37-year-old woman identified as Zaida, after being accused of beheading her child with a kitchen knife.

A resident living near the cemetery called the police to report a nervous woman in the cemetery. Police officers who arrived at the scene, said that the woman was behaved erratically.

When officers entered the chapel, they found the beheaded baby on the floor. Zaida was taken to a nearby hospital, where her mental health will be assessed.

The woman, a mother of a 3-year-old child, was discharged from the hospital eight days before killing her baby. She is married to a clothing store owner, and she does not have any financial problems.
