Police remain on the scene of what appears to be grisly murder-suicide in New Jersey.

Police tell WPVI-TV in Philadelphia that a Camden woman decapitated her 2-year-old child before stabbing herself to death.

Officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute at the home 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 and the child's head inside a refrigerator.
