There's disturbing news coming out of the Forest Park, Georgia area where a man was taken into custody for stabbing his wife dozens of times, killing her in front of her children.
The violent attack occurred on late Wednesday night, where 30-year-old Jermaine Jones murdered his 47-year-old wife Opal Fern Christian-Jones, police say.
Eyewitnesses to the pair fighting called 911 to report a domestic violence dispute occurring inside the pair's Springview Drive home, according to a police report from the Clayton County Sheriff's Office.
Upon arrival, authorities found Christian-Jones deceased, with her head nearly severed from her body.
One of the neighbors of the couple witnessed the entire event.
She claims that shortly after Jones murdered his wife, he began screaming at the children.
“What are you crying for?” Jones screamed. “You act like you ain't never seen a dead body before.”

The neighbor says Jones was talking to his young daughter, who was inside the home when authorities arrived.
Jones, however, was nowhere to be found.
Several others who live in the vicinity of the home could hear the commotion from their fight, and the blood-curdling cries of a woman being nearly decapitated.
Jones himself contacted emergency 911 to report that he committed the crime as if he had been driven off the deep end.
Some neighbors say that they weren't aware of previous domestic issues and that this was unexpected.
"They might have had problems at home that we didn't know outside," a neighbor said.
Jones’ clothes were soaked in blood when police found him later at the nearby Holiday Inn, and he was taken into custody for first-degree murder.
The children are reportedly safe with family members, but Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill said he'll ask the authorities to seek the death penalty.
A senseless slaying at the hands of a ruthless criminal, with no regard for human life or the wellbeing of his children.
