Family members said they were having dinner with 29-year-old Hiralbahen Bhavsar when the woman from Little Ferry, New Jersey, locked the door to her bedroom and stabbed her 5-day-old daughter in the throat who was crying, killing her.
Bhavsar told police in a call to 911 on May 2, 2019, at 8:30 pm ET according to court records, that her husband was trying to kill her with a knife.
Police arrived at her home, and family members stopped them from taking into custody her husband. Bhavsar excited from her bedroom and shouted: “I did I! I killed my baby!”
The officers found the newborn dead on the bed. She had been stabbed in the arm and neck, according to documentation filed in Hackensack Superior Court.
A few hours before the murder, Bhavsar posted on her social media a photo of her daughter, husband, and herself.
Bhavsar was taken to Bergen New Bridge Medical Center on May 4. She remains there for treatment and is under psychiatric observation.
Bhavsar has been charged with first-degree murder possession of weapons in connection to killing her daughter.
The Bergen County Medical Examiner arrived at the scene along with the Criminal Identification unit of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department.
