A heartbreaking story of an unborn baby being cut from his mother’s abdomen has become even more tragic.
Authorities said the little boy died Friday after being in the hospital for more than seven weeks.
The baby’s mother, Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, was 9 months pregnant when she was killed, which police believe happened on April 23 when she responded to a Facebook post offering free baby clothes.
Her attackers cut the child from her body and took the newborn to a local hospital, claiming it was their own.
The child, which the family later named Yovanny Jadiel Lopez, was treated in the neonatal intensive care unit at a Chicago area hospital.
