Toddler decapitated in northern Spain by father

MADRID (AP) - Spanish police say a 2-year-old girl was decapitated by her father, who told investigators he was possessed by a demon who ordered him to kill the child. The suspect, a 34-year-old Colombian identified only as Marcelo R. O., is accused of using a knife to cut off the head of his daughter in the north-eastern city of Girona.
