CHICAGO — Visitation and funeral arrangements have been set for Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, the 19-year-old Chicago woman lured to a home and murdered.
Her son was cut from her womb. He is now on life support in grave condition with no brain activity.
Public visitation is set for 3 to 9 p.m. May 23 and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. May 24 at Mount Auburn Funeral Home at 4101 S. Oak Park Ave. in Stickney, Ill. Ochoa-Lopez’s funeral will be held at 9 a.m. May 25 at the same funeral home, followed by an 11 a.m. chapel service.
On Friday, dozens of people gathered for a memorial outside the home where Ochoa-Lopez was killed in the 4100 block of West 77th Place in Chicago’s Scottsdale neighborhood.
Three people are charged in her murder.
Clarisa Figueroa, 46, is said to be the mastermind behind the attack, soliciting the help of her boyfriend, 40-year-old Piotr Bobak, and her 24-year-old daughter Desiree Figueroa.
Prosecutors said seven months ago, Clarisa Figueroa started talking about being pregnant on social media, despite her neighbors saying she had her tubes tied.
Investigators said Clarisa Figueroa and Ochoa-Lopez met in a Facebook group for moms.
Clarisa Figueroa is accused of luring the pregnant mother to her home with the promise of exchanging baby items.
Prosecutors said once Ochoa-Lopez got there, Clarisa Figueroa strangled her with a cable and had her daughter help. Investigators said the mother and daughter then cut a baby boy from Ochoa-Lopez’s womb with a butcher knife.
The women didn’t call 911 until too late, prosecutors said. Ochoa-Lopez’s son, Yadiel Yovany Lopez, remains hospitalized on life support and is in grave condition with no brain activity.
Clarisa and Desiree Figueroa are both charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery of a child causing permanent disability. Bobak is charged with helping to conceal the death. Investigators said he was cleaning a rug with bleach when authorities arrived.
Desiree Figueroa is four months pregnant.
