A father could not understand how his wife could laugh uncontrollably in his face after killing their young child, according to police in California.

Westminster police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Thi Nhat Ha Nguyen after being accused of killing her 4-month-old son by hitting him over the head.

Nguyen has been charged with one count of homicide.

She was booked into jail, pending a bail hearing.

If convicted, Nguyen faces up to life in prison.

According to the police investigation, when Nguyen was pregnant, she attempted to commit suicide.

She also suffered from depression.

On Monday, Nguyen and her husband Hung had a fight at their home located in the 15000 block of Coronado Street.

Hung reported that his wife became very angry and ripped family photos off the wall.

On Tuesday, at about 11:00 p.m., Hung came home and asked about their son.

Hung became suspicious after Nguyen started laughing uncontrollably.

Hung ran into his child’s bedroom and was shocked to see him unresponsive.

The boy also had red marks on his head.

He called 911 to report that his wife killed their son.

Police officers who arrived at the scene found the infant child unresponsive and not breathing.

Officers tried to revive the child but were unsuccessful.

The baby was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The couple does not have any other children.
