Ochoa-Lopez's body was found in a garbage can last month behind the Chicago home of a woman now charged in Ochoa-Lopez's killing.

Prosecutors say 46-year-old Clarisa Figueroa claimed she had given birth to the baby when she took him to a hospital. She and her 24-year-old daughter are charged with first-degree murder.
