The family accused of killing a teenage mother and subsequently stolen her baby in a cruel cruel robbery case pleaded guilty to the indictment on Wednesday.

Clarisa Figueroa, 46, her daughter Desiree, 24, and Clarisa & # 39; s friend Piotr Bobak, 40, all participated in guilty pleas.

Their lawyer also asks for a GAG order to be made to prevent details about the sickening case from being made public.

Clarisa and Desiree are accused of stabbing 19-year-old Marlen Lopez on April 23 after she went to their home in search of baby clothes. She was pregnant then and Clarisa and her daughter had strangled her to death and cut her son from her womb.

Prosecutors say they plan to file an additional assassination attempt because the boy died in the hospital two weeks ago.

Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom, but according to those there, all three suspects were heavily guarded.

Members of Marlen & # 39; s family, including her widower, were there for appearance.

The baby died earlier this month after two months of life support.

Bobak was not accused of murder but of helping the two women hide it.

Marlen & # 39; s body was found in a garbage can outside their house, her car was parked nearby, and she had been in contact with Clarisa on Facebook.

For weeks before her body was found, Clarisa and Bobak pretended that the baby was theirs and asked for social media donations.

Clarisa had also been on Facebook and claimed to be pregnant, despite the fact that her fallopian tubes were tied up.

Desiree also made a confession with videotapes in which she said her mother screamed at her because she & # 39; did not do her job & # 39; while Marlen fought for her life.

It was the second time she was in their home. The first was weeks earlier and according to prosecutors they wanted to kill her, but Desiree & # 39; s friend stopped them.

After the appearance of the court on Wednesday, the Marlen family said they were furious.

Yovany, her husband, said he was not surprised by the non-guilty pleas.

"Every criminal says they are not guilty … but only God knows that and they know it in their heart and mind," he said.

He said he just wanted justice and had gone through enough.

& # 39; I hope justice is served because the truth is that I have suffered a lot for the loss of my son, the loss of my wife. The only thing I am asking for is justice, so there can be a fair trial, & he said.

A representative of the family said that the prosecutors had told them unambiguously and in great detail how Desiree professed it.

It was also presented in their bond offering by the Attorney's Office of the Cook County State.

That stated that a month before the murder, Clarisa also told her adult daughter that she needed & # 39; help killing a pregnant woman and having a baby & # 39 ;.
