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

Police say 46-year-old Clarisa Figueroa and her daughter, 24-year-old Desiree Figueroa were charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Lopez. The older woman’s boyfriend, 40-year-old Piotr Bobak, is charged with concealment of a homicide.

Police say the break in the case came after detectives learned more than a week after Ochoa-Lopez’s April 23 disappearance that she had responded to a Facebook offer of free clothes and arranged to pick them up.

Three people have been arrested in connection with the death of a pregnant Chicago woman, who was strangled before her baby was cut from her womb.

Chicago police took the three into custody shortly before the body of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez was discovered behind a home on the city’s Southwest Side. Authorities were to release the names of those arrested later Thursday.

Ochoa-Lopez was nine months pregnant when she disappeared April 23. Police and family say she had gone to a home in response to a Facebook offer of free baby clothes.

Authorities say that the same day Ochoa-Lopez vanished, a 46-year-old woman called 911 about a baby in distress. The baby isn’t expected to survive.
