Officials in Chicago said on Monday that a woman was suspected of using a power saw to murder a baby, and then trying to kill herself.
The Chicago Tribune reported that police found the child at a home on Chicago’s West Side at around 9:40 a.m. on Monday.
According to law enforcement officials, a 52-year-old woman who was frustrated over the 9-month-old girl’s crying had used a circular saw to cut her throat. The suspect then tried to take her own life, police said.
Ben Llamas told The Chicago Tribune that he was working with the child’s father at a grain elevator in Beecher when police called. Llamas said that he gave the father a ride to the crime scene on South Avers Avenue.
“There’s nothing better than kind of minding your own business,” Llamas recalled. “We just drove in silence. He was in shock.”
Neighbor Francisco Arreola said that a mother, a father and two girls lived in the home. It wasn’t clear if the home had any other occupants.
Police said that the suspect, who was described as a relative of the victim, was in stable condition at Mount Sinai Hospital.

WATCH: Seth Meyers goes after ‘sociopath’ Jared Kushner for America’s coronavirus failures
The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on NBC harshly criticized senior White House advisor Jared Kushner for America's COVID-19 testing failures.
"More than 155,000 Americans have now died from the coronavirus pandemic," Meyers noted. "Cases are rising in more than 20 states. The U.S. now accounts for one-quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the world."
"And in some parts of the country, people are waiting as long as two-weeks to get their test results -- which is insane. The whole point of testing is to find cases, isolate them and trace their contacts. If it takes two weeks, it's pointless."
Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
