HOUSTON -- A mother is charged with capital murder in the fatal stabbing of her five-year-old son in Houston.

Court documents say 43-year-old Lihui Liu allegedly drowned him, decapitated the body and then put it in a trash can. Police were called to their home Friday night on reports of a stabbing and found the body.

During a recorded interview with authorities, Liu reportedly confessed to drowning her son. A judge found probably cause for her arrest and has denied her bond.

No word on how she is responding to the charges.
