Three arrested in pregnant Chicago woman's death

Clarisa Figueroa, 46, and her daughter Desiree Figueroa, 24, are accused of killing Marlen Ochoa-Uriostequi, 19, and the aggravated battery of Marlen's baby boy. "I think it's as low as we can hope for it to be". Later that day, her family got a call saying that she hadn't shown up to pick up her 3-year-old son from day care. She had sent a text message to her husband saying that she was too exhausted to drive anymore, then vanished. She was nine months pregnant.

Guglielmi said investigators are interviewing the people taken from the home about the slaying of Ochoa-Uriostegui.

"She gave her mother a big hug and told her, 'You're the best mom in the world, '" Cortes said.

"She was very pro-active", Rooney said.

Three people have been charged after a missing pregnant woman was found dead on Chicago's Southwest Side, according to police. "How could they do this knowing she has family and a three-year-old son?" Sources said she had been led to the basement, where she was strangled, and her baby was cut out of her womb.

On May 7, Chicago police received a break in the investigation and learned Ochoa was in communication with Figueroa, according to police.

Julie Contreras, a student pastor at Lincoln United Methodist Church, described how the family were "searching for answers with Marlen".

Figueroa's boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, has been charged with concealing the death of a person and one felony count of concealing a homicidal death.

Detectives met with Desiree Figueroa that day, and she told them her mother had delivered the baby.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Merritt said a woman called 911 reporting that her newborn baby was in distress.

The child was rushed to the hospital where it remains in "grave" condition, a police spokeswoman told PEOPLE. A 911 dispatcher was told on April 23 that the baby was blue and not breathing. They performed CPR on the infant and transported him to the hospital. According to Ochoa-Lopez's family, it was the missing teenager's baby, which had been cut from her body. DNA tests revealed that Ochoa-Lopez and her husband Yiovanni Lopez are the parents.

A 46-year-old woman, now identified as Figueroa, claimed to have a stroller and other baby items. He called the crime heinous and hard to comprehend.

"They should be celebrating the birth of a young baby", he added. "Instead, they're mourning the loss of a mother and possibly that young child". It was covered with parking tickets.

Police said Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, 19, was heading to the Figueroa house after the mother posted an offer of free baby clothes on a Facebook chatroom. Her due date was approaching, she wrote, and there were still a lot of supplies that she needed. Her cause of death was strangulation. They are demanding justice for Marlen and her loved ones.

Ochoa's body was dumped in a garbage can at the home in the 4100 block of 77th Place early Wednesday morning.

Ochoa-Uriostegui's son, named Yadiel Yovany Lopez by his father and Ochoa-Uriostegui's husband, Giovanni Lopez, is now in hospital on life support. The family said it has named the baby Yadiel.

Speaking to reporters outside the medical examiner's office on Wednesday night, Ochoa-Lopez's husband, Yovany Lopez, wept.

"Why did these people, why did these bad people do this?" "She did nothing to them".
