Baby boy dies after being cut from slain mother’s womb

Baby boy dies after being cut from slain mother’s womb

The baby of a 19-year-old woman who was murdered in Chicago has died, family says.

Representatives for the family told United States media that the baby's condition had deteriorated this week. He can't eat on his own. Police have said the baby suffered severe brain damage and is unlikely to survive. "There's no medicine, there's no pill that can fix that". The baby was cut from his mother's womb and his mother was killed.

The baby's real identity was not revealed for three weeks, after police investigating Ochoa's disappearance conducted a DNA test on the baby and confirmed he was Ochoa's.

Yovani Lopez holds his son, Yovanny Jadiel Lopez, in the hospital in this photo released by family members. The picture, taken by a student pastor, shows the baby attached to various tubes and apparently asleep in his father's arms.

Doctors wouldn't speculate on the baby's survival chances, but there was hope after he opened his eyes at the end of May.

A mother and daughter are charged in Ochoa-Lopez's killing.

Prosecutors say 46-year-old Clarisa Figueroa claimed she had given birth to the baby when she took him to a hospital.

A third person, Desiree's boyfriend Piotr Bobak, 40, has also been charged for his alleged involvement, and faces one felony count of concealment of a homicide.

The three defendants are due back in court June 26. Bobak's lawyer hasn't seen a copy of the indictment but maintains his client's innocence, the attorney told CNN.

Clarisa Figueroa then got on top of the teen and strangled her for about four to five minutes, the prosecutor said.

Asked about the family's motivation for slaying the teen and stealing her baby, Johnson replied: "Only they know that", reported ABC 7.

"I would like to offer my honest condolences and prayers to Marlen's family, who instead of celebrating the arrival of a new life into their family, are now mourning Marlen's loss, while at the same time caring for a new little baby that's in grave condition".

The suspects allegedly planned the attack for months.

She posted on the page again the following month, asking, "Who is due in May" and "Where is the May mama's at". In March, she and Ochoa-Lopez connected on a Facebook page for pregnant women. Figueroa offered her clothes for the baby and suggested they talk in a private message.

Authorities contend that not long after Clarisa Figueroa's adult son died of natural causes, she told her family she was pregnant.

Ochoa-Lopez was found dead in a garbage can in the backyard of a house in Chicago on May 15, where she went missing on April 23. The neighbor said the woman told her, "I just had the baby, and it's not breathing". She denied the victim came to her house April 23 but admitted to meeting her in the past, police said.
