Murder charges have been filed against a woman and her daughter in the death of a pregnant Chicago woman whose baby was cut from her womb.
Marlen Ochoa-Lopez was nine months' pregnant when she disappeared April 23. The family spoke in Spanish outside the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Police did not connect the woman's disappearance and the 911 call about the baby until May 7, when friends of Ochoa-Lopez directed detectives to her social media account, which showed she had communicated with Figueroa in a Facebook group for expectant mothers.
They later found the body in a trash can behind the house and recovered surveillance video that showed Ochoa-Lopez's vehicle driving through the neighborhood on the day they believed she was killed, authorities said.
A break in the investigation came after the woman who said she had given birth to the baby set up an online fundraising campaign, another spokeswoman for Ochoa-Lopez's family said.
She claimed she had just given birth to the boy who wasn't breathing and emergency services were called, immediately rushing the baby boy to hospital, where it was later discovered that he had no brain function.
Quinet, who co-authored the homicide textbook The Will to Kill: Making Sense of Senseless Murder, said it's as illogical as it is horrific: she's unaware of any case of "murder by C-section", as she describes it, in which the baby wasn't found and the crime wasn't discovered.
The child has been hospitalised and reportedly is in serious condition.
She wanted to raise another child two years after her son died of natural causes, according to police.

Saudi newspaper calls for United States to launch 'surgical strikes' on Iran
Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. entered the Yemen war in 2015 and have long accused Iran of providing their Houthi foes with support. Meanwhile, the Qatar-funded satellite news broadcaster Al-Jazeera said Qatar is trying to "defuse escalating tensions".
DNA tests later proved that the baby that was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn on the day Ochoa-Uriostegui went missing belonged to the 19-year-old.
Later, Ochoa-Lopez's family got confirmation that the baby belongs to her, said Jacobita Cortes, a pastor at Adalberto Memorial United Methodist Church in Chicago, according to CNN.
According to police, the young woman drove from her high school to Figueroa's home in response to an offer of free clothes that Figueroa had posted on Facebook.
"If you consider an extremely rare event of the millions of women a year who are pregnant, there would be no way as individual people that we could take this risk to zero", she said. "She would ask for what she needed, which is, I think, a strength".
"She did nothing to them".
She disappeared after leaving Latino Youth High School in Little Village.
The Chicago Sun-Times also reports that Bobak last fall began posting ultrasound images with Clarisa Figueroa's name on Facebook, saying "my baby hopefully twins Love Clarissa".
The older Figueroa's boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, 40, was charged with concealment of a homicide. The baby, however, was not Ochoa-Uriostegui's.
"Ultimately, DNA evidence and interviews led us to the three offenders that are now charged", he said. Both the cable and Ochoa-Lopez's body were found Wednesday in a garbage can on the Figueroas' property, Johnson said at the news conference.
