Baby who was cut from mother's womb during attack dies

Yovani Yadiel Lopez and slain mom Marlen Ochoa-Lopez

"He passed away... from his severe brain injury".

A spokeswoman for the family of a slain Chicago woman whose baby was cut from her womb with a butcher knife says the infant boy has died.

Ms Ochoa-Lopez was nine months pregnant at the time.

Police say Ochoa-Lopez was lured to a woman's home by an offer of free baby clothes.

Yovanny's mother, Marlen Ochoa, 19, was brutally strangled before her stomach was cut open and Yovanny was snatched from her womb.

Arnulfo Ochoa, the father of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, is surrounded by family members and supporters, as he walks into the Cook County medical examiner's office to identify his daughter's body in Chicago on May 16, 2019.

"Words can not express how disgusting and thoroughly disturbing these allegations are", Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told reporters at a news conference to announce the charges about three weeks after Ochoa vanished on April 23.

"He suffered irrevocable brain damage", Contreras added, according to the station.

Bryan Singer to pay $150K to settle sex assault claim
Sanchez-Guzman filed a lawsuit against Singer in December 2017 , just days after the director was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody . Singer's attorney Andrew Brettler said the filmmaker doesn't even know Sanchez-Guzman and hasn't had any interactions with him.

Prosecutors said Clarisa Figueroa, 46, claimed she had given birth to the baby when she took him to a hospital on April 23.

Desiree Figueroa distracted Ochoa-Lopez with a photo album while the elder Figueroa wrapped a cable around Ochoa-Lopez's neck, assistant state's attorney James Murphy said.

Due to that lack of oxygen, Yovanny continued to struggle, and was placed on life support. Figueroa's boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, is charged with concealing a homicide.

The accused, who remain in custody, will be asked to enter pleas to the charges when they are next in court on June 26. Figueroa and her 24-year-old daughter, Desiree Figueroa, have been charged with murder in Ochoa's death.

Authorities contend that not long after Clarisa Figueroa's adult son died of natural causes, she told her family she was pregnant. Her child, Yovanny Jadiel Lopez, survived when he was forcibly cut from his mother's womb, but was in grave condition.

The motive for the killing is under investigation, but Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said he believes the elder Figueroa wanted to raise the child as her own.

Ochoa-Lopez's body was found in a garbage can in the backyard, along with the cable used to strangle her and other evidence, police said.

Subsequent DNA tests revealed that Ms Ochoa-Lopez was the baby's mother.
