Officers initially responded to a 911 call of a stabbing at the home around 7 pm.

Police arrived at the scene to find the boy’s body in the garage partially covered with a plastic bag.

The boy’s father later told cops he came home from work and Liu told him she sent their son away.

After he started looking for the boy, his wife allegedly admitted the child was in the bin.

He found the body covered in a black bag along with his severed head.

Police recovered a blood-soaked knife in the bathroom and recorded a blood splatter in the tub.

Liu was taken into custody, where she reportedly admitted to drowning her son.

She gave officers no further details of the decapitation.

The couple also has a 13-year-old daughter, but it’s unclear if she was in the house at the time of the slaying.

Liu was charged with murder and is expected to be back in court on Monday.
