Hong Kong woman decapitates her mother before leaping to her death

Hong Kong (dpa) – A woman decapitated her mother before setting

their apartment on fire and jumping to her death, a media report said


   The woman, believed to have been mentally ill, stabbed her mother

multiple times, cut off her head and then leapt from their 11th-floor

flat, the South China Morning Post said.

   The pair were heard having a heated argument before the incident

on Sunday night.

   A caretaker called police and firefighters after he smelled

burning and saw smoke coming from inside. The daughter jumped to her

death as police broke into the flat.
