Upstate NY Woman Decapitated 7-Year-Old Son, Police Say

Georgie Silvarole, NewYork Upstate, April 6, 2018


Hanane Mouhib, 36, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder, 13WHAM reported. She is being held at the Monroe County Jail without bail.

Mouhib allegedly killed her son, Abraham Cardenas, in their home in Sweden, New York, on Thursday night, the Democrat & Chronicle reported. Mouhib used a large kitchen knife to stab Abraham in both the upper left area of his back and in his neck, and severed his head from his body, according to investigators.


Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter described the home as an an “extreme, horrific crime scene” in a press conference Friday, the D&C reported.

When deputies arrived Thursday night, Baxter said they had to use both pepper spray and a Taser to disarm Mouhib after she refused to drop a knife she was holding, the D&C said.
