CHICAGO (CNN) – An infant cut from his mother’s womb in a gruesome crime reportedly opened his eyes briefly Sunday.

19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Lopez was nine months pregnant when she was killed and her unborn baby — a little boy — cut from her belly.

He’s in grave condition and on life support in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Friends of the family of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez released this photo of the baby and his father together.

There will be three days of visitation for her — Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Her funeral will be held Saturday at the mount auburn funeral home in Stickney, Illinois.

Three people have been arrested in connection with the crime.
