Marlen Ochoa-Lopez murder: Baby cut from womb dies

Baby Ripped Out of Chicago Mother’s Womb Passes Away

After initially showing slight signs of improvement, the baby boy who was cut from his mother's womb in April has died.

"It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of baby Yovanny Jadiel Lopez", the family's spokesperson, Julie Contreras, said in a statement.

"Please keep his family in your thoughts & prayers as they go through this hard time", she added.

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

Representatives for the family told USA media that the baby's condition had deteriorated this week. Clarisa Figueroa's boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, 40, was indicted on a charge of concealing a homicide, WLS said. Figueroa and her 24-year-old daughter, Desiree Figueroa, have been charged with murder in Ochoa's death.

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

Her body was not found for three weeks after her disappearance.

"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.

Clarisa and Desiree Figueroa have both been charged with murder.

The baby had been on life support since being brought to the hospital on April 23.

All three suspects are expected back in court this month.

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

Then on April 1, Figueroa told her daughter that "she needed help killing a pregnant woman and taking a baby", Murphy said.

They said she plotted for months to acquire a newborn, and that she posted an ultrasound and photos of a room decorated for a baby on her Facebook page.

Ochoa-Lopez, ahigh school student, went to Figueroa's home at least twice this year after connecting through the Facebook group and accepting Figueroa's offer of baby items, Chicago police said. In March, she and Ochoa-Lopez connected on a Facebook page for pregnant women.

"Words really can not express how disgusting and thoroughly disturbing these allegations are", Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said last month.

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