The newborn who was cut from his mother's womb, Marlen Ochoa-López, has died, according to the family.
The 19-year-old young Hispanic mother was suffocated on April 23 to remove the baby she was carrying.
"It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of baby Yovanny Jadiel López," said Julie Contreras, spokesperson for the López family, in a statement on Facebook. “She died this Friday, June 14, 2019, from her serious brain injury. Please keep your family in your thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time,”she said.
The baby's funeral will be held privately for the family.
Local police allege that Clarisa Figueroa, 46, strangled Ochoa-López inside her home under cheating and aided by her daughter, Desiree Figueroa, 24. Then a call was made from her home in South Chicago asking for help and claiming that someone "46 years old" had given birth to a baby who was pale and bluish and not breathing.
The baby has been in the newborn intensive care unit since Figueroas took him to the hospital in April, shortly after killing Marlen Ochoa-López, authorities say.
López's family expected a miracle despite the doctors' prognosis, as well as the most severe charges by the Figueroas for the damage caused to the newborn.
The chilling murder of Marlen Ochoa-López continues to cast unknowns.
