Kansas City woman decapitated 6-year-old son, police say

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City, Missouri, woman is accused of decapitating her 6-year-old son.

Police went to a home Tuesday night on a report of a disturbance, according to court documents.

Officers say that they found blood on the front steps and that the woman inside refused to answer the door.

Officers also saw a severed head inside.

They forced their way in and found two knives and a woman, 35-year-old Tasha Haefs, with blood on her, court documents say.

A dead dog was also found inside the home.

Authorities say Haefs admitted to killing the boy.

She has been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

“Anytime it’s a child, it just takes on a different depth of despair,” Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker told ABC affiliate KMBC.
