Funeral plans were announced on Saturday for Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, the pregnant Chicago woman who was murdered last month and her unborn baby cut from her womb after she responded to an ad for free baby clothes.

Three people have been charged in her killing, including a woman who prosecutors say lured Ochoa-Lopez to her Chicago-area home, strangled her and then removed Ochoa-Lopez's baby from her womb. The baby has been hospitalized since the incident.

Ochoa-Lopez was 9 months pregnant when she was killed and she is survived by a 3-year-old child. Her baby is in grave condition at a hospital with no brain activity, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors in Chicago have charged Clarisa Figueroa, 46, and her daughter Desiree Figueroa, 24, with the murder.

Investigators believe the murder took place on April 23.
