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.

Kellyanne Conway erupts after Fox hosts question Trump’s attacks on The Squad
Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday went off on an angry rant after Fox News hosts questioned the wisdom of President Donald Trump's latest attacks on four Democratic lawmakers known as "The Squad."
In particular, Conway was asked about Trump's tweet in which he said Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) were incapable of loving the United States.
Conway responded by attacking the women for voting against funding for the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, which the lawmakers argued would just be giving the president money to further his campaign of abusing immigrants.
C-SPAN caller poisoned by Trump says congresswomen in The Squad own ’27 million black African slaves’
A Republican caller told C-SPAN on Monday that four non-white congresswomen own "27 million black African slaves."
On C-SPAN's Washington Journal program, a woman in Washington called in on the Republican line to rant against members of the so-called Squad: Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Rashida Tlaib (MI).
Lara began her call by chastising the media.
"There's a lot of facts that are being walked around," she complained. "For example, regarding the Russia-Mueller thing, it's a proven fact that there was false evidence bought by Obama, Clinton and all the rest... those are facts. That's not an opinion."
