The New Jersey Department of Youth and Family Services took custody of Zahree, Laughlin said. The child was returned to Thomas only four months ago.
A Camden, N.J., mother decapitated a 2-year-old son she only recently regained custody of before stabbing herself to death early Wednesday morning.
Chevonne Thomas, 33, and her son, Zahree Thomas, were found dead by police who stormed their home after responding to a 911 call after midnight from the woman saying someone had harmed her son. The headless child was found on the first floor, his mother in her second floor bedroom, according to multiple media reports. The boy's head was found in the freezer.
When police first arrived, Chevonne Thomas was still on the phone with emergency operators. Not knowing if she was armed or if anyone else was still in the home, police retreated and formed a perimeter, reported the Courier Post and WPVI.
By the time cops broke a second floor window and entered the residence, the woman was found dead from a self-inflicted stab wound to her neck, reported Philly.com. The shocking crime stunned cops hardened from decades of experience in one of the country's most violent cities.
