A baby cut from his mother's womb during a brutal attack in Chicago has died after two months on life support, a family spokeswoman has said.
Yovanny Jadiel Lopez, the infant son of 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, had been in intensive care since the April attack that killed his mother. Police say Ms Ochoa-Lopez was strangled after arranging to meet a woman to pick up free baby clothes.
Her son died on Friday of severe brain injury, the family spokeswoman said. "It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of baby Yovanny Jadiel Lopez," Julie Contreras said in a statement. "Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time."
Representatives for the family told US media that the baby's condition had deteriorated this week. "He suffered irrevocable brain damage," Ms Contreras said, according to local TV station WLS.
