FL woman fatally stabs 2-year-old son

New Port Richey authorities say a mother fatally stabbed her 2-year-old son and cut herself. She told officers she was "trying to kill the demons."

Police in this Gulf Coast community northwest of Tampa say 24-year-old Jessica Warren is being treated in the hospital with non-life-threatening cuts on her arms.

When Warren is medically stable, police say she will be charged with the murder of her son, Jeremiah Oshinkanlu, who turned two last month.

Officers were called to the family's home Thursday after Jeremiah's uncle stopped by to check on them. The uncle found the boy dead in a pool of blood and Warren conscious but bleeding.

Neighbors say they thought Warren had been living in the house less than a year.
