New York : Woman 'beheaded by son'

A man has reportedly beheaded a woman in New York then committed suicide by jumping in front of a train.

The woman was believed to be the man’s mother, NBC reports.

The body of the woman, who was in her 60s, was found outside a Farmingdale apartment complex. Her head was severed.

The man, who was in his 30s, was found about one kilometre away on a section of the Long Island Rail Road tracks.

Passengers on the train were being loaded onto another train, and will be taken back to another station and bussed to their destinations from there, police officials said.

Police have said the incident appears to be domestic, and not terror-related.
