The Chicago woman known as the “womb raider,” who mu*rdered a pregnant teenager and cut out her unborn baby from her womb, was sentenced to 50 years behind bars for her disturbing cr*imes.

Clarisa Figueroa, 51, received the sentence in a Cook County courtroom Tuesday after she pleaded guilty to first-degree m*urder for the 2019 k*illing of 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Lopez.

Before entering her plea agreement, Figueroa sat in court and listened to the heartbroken Ochoa-Lopez family, who said the “punishment will never be enough.”

“The loss of my daughter’s life is something I will never overcome,” Ochoa-Lopez’s mother, Raquel Uriostegui, wrote in her statement.

Yovanny Lopez, Ochoa-Lopez’s husband and father of their older son and of the baby k*illed by the mother-daughter duo, wrote, “Your punishment will never be enough because my son will never be able to hug his mother ever!”

“I lost my family, and that will always stay with me,” the grieving father said in tears outside the courtroom following the sentencing.

Along with the help of her daughter, Desiree Figueroa, 29, the two mur*derous women lured the young mother to the Figueroa family’s home with the promise of free clothes for her unborn baby.

Ochoa-Lopez had been to the home on April 1, 2019, and left unharmed.

Detectives discovered her decomposing body inside the trash container.

A DNA test later confirmed the baby Clarisa was trying to pass off as her newborn was Ochoa-Lopez’s.

Authorities said not long after Clarisa’s adult son died of natural causes, she began lying to her family that she was pregnant despite having her fallopian tubes tied years earlier.

For months, she posted an ultrasound and photos of a nursery on her Facebook page while plotting to acquire a newborn by any means necessary.

Investigators found that Clarisa had been in connect with Ochoa-Lopez on a Facebook page for pregnant women since March 2019.

Desiree Figueroa was given a lighter sentence of 30 years for first-degree mu*rder after she agreed to testify against her mother as part of the plea deal.

Clarisa’s boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, who helped clean up the cri*me scene, was sentenced to four years in prison last year after pleading guilty to concealing the mur*der.
