The baby of slain Chicago teen Marlen Ochoa-Lopez has passed away after weeks of being on life support.

"It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of baby Yovanny Jadiel Lopez", reads the statement, which attributes the infant's passing to the "severe brain injury" he suffered after he was forcibly removed from his mother's womb. He was in intensive care with severe brain damage since arriving to the hospital. "There's no medicine, there's no pill that can fix that". She was then strangled and her unborn baby cut from her.

Yovani Lopez holds his son, Yovanny Jadiel Lopez, in the hospital in this photo released by family members.

Pictures showed Yovanny in the arms of his father, while connected to multiple tubes and sensors.

Around the time the photo was taken, the baby opened his eyes.

A mother and daughter are charged in Ochoa-Lopez's killing. 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. Bobak's lawyer hasn't seen a copy of the indictment but maintains his client's innocence, the attorney told CNN.

Clarisa and Desiree Figueroa have both been charged with murder.

A baby has died after he was cut out of the body of a Chicago teenager weeks earlier, WGN reports.

Later that day, Clarisa Figueroa called 911 claiming her newborn baby wasn't breathing.

Due to that lack of oxygen, Yovanny continued to struggle, and was placed on life support.

Ms Figueroa was allegedly helped by her daughter, Desiree Figueroa, 24.

She posted on the page again the following month, asking, "Who is due in May" and "Where is the May mama's at". Figueroa offered her clothes for the baby and suggested they talk in a private message.

Authorities contend that not long after Clarisa Figueroa's adult son died of natural causes, she told her family she was pregnant.

Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, 19, was lured to the home of an older woman who was in a mother's Facebook group.

Ochoa-Lopez's husband reported her missing on April 24, police said.

Investigators searched the area and found Ochoa-Lopez's vehicle nearby, Deputy Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said.

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

Armed with a search warrant, crime lab officers searched Figueroa's house.

Police say Ms Ochoa-Lopez was strangled after arranging to meet a woman to pick up free baby clothes.
