Police say a New Jersey woman apparently decapitated her 2-year-old child before stabbing herself to death after a domestic dispute.

Police tell WPVI-TV in Philadelphia that officers responded to a report of dispute at the home in Camden early Wednesday.

Police say the woman, who had a history of mental problems, had barricaded herself inside after arguing with a man believed to be her boyfriend. Officers gained entry to the home and found the woman dead, with a neck wound, and the child's head inside a refrigerator.
