CHICAGO -- The three people charged in the murder of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez appeared in court Monday.

The 19-year-old was nine months pregnant when she was lured to a South Side home in April and murdered. Her son Yovani was cut from her womb.

Clarisa Figueroa, 46, and her daughter, Desiree, 24, are charged with murder.

Figueroa's boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, 40, is charged with concealing a homicide. He has hired a private defense attorney to represent him.  His attorney said Bobak is innocent of all charges and had no involvement in the crime.

They are due back in court June 12.

The family says the baby Yovani remains inside an incubator on life support and suffered brain damage.
