Brazilian ‘womb raider’ kills pregnant sister, cuts out baby to give to another woman

A 13-year-old Brazilian girl allegedly bludgeoned her older sister to death and ripped the infant alive from her womb to give to another woman who wanted the child, according to a sickening new report.

The unidentified teen carried out the barbaric attack on her 23-year-old sister, Fabiana Santana — bashing her in the head with an iron bar and stabbing her to death — in the city of Porto Velho, in the northwest part of the country, the Sun reported Tuesday.

She’s also accused in the callous drowning death of her 7-year-old nephew, Gustavo, who had attempted to save his mother’s life, authorities told the outlet.

“This is a crime that has shocked even the most seasoned police officers because there is evidence it was premeditated,” local police chief Leisaloma Carvalho told the outlet. “The teenage suspect has admitted to killing her sister and her 7-year-old nephew. And told us that she threw Gustavo, who couldn’t swim, into the nearby lake, then stoned him until he drowned.”

The monster teen intended to give the baby boy to 35-year-old Catia Rabelo — whose own 15-year-old son is accused of helping her carry out the sick plot, according to the report.

Rabelo had been faking a pregnancy and needed a child to prove it — so that her gold-prospector beau would marry her, according to the report.

Authorities found the newborn alive in the care of Rabelo’s teen son.

Relatives reported Fabiana and Gustavo missing after they failed to return home after a night out with the teen suspects Oct. 18, according to the report.

Fabiana’s body was discovered in a shallow grave on a vacant plot three days later, her face disfigured, the outlet reported. An autopsy report released Friday indicates she may have been alive when the teen used a knife to cut the infant from her womb.

Gustavo’s body was found floating in a man-made lake nearby.

Both teens are charged with double homicide and are being held in a youth custody center awaiting psychological assessments, according to the report.

The 13-year-old said the grisly crime was an act of vengeance — a claim that authorities are investigating, Carvalho told the Sun.

“The girl made a separate claim that she committed the crimes out of revenge because she was sexually abused by her sister’s husband and ill-treated by Fabiana, who didn’t believe her stories,” the police chief said.

Rabelo went on the run after the incident, but was ultimately busted Wednesday and confessed to inciting the teens to carry out their sick crimes, according to the report.

Meanwhile, the infant, weighing 3.9 pounds, is under observation at Porto Base Old Hospital, where he’s in good health.

Brazil’s “womb raider” case comes less than a year after nine-months-pregnant Chicago teen Marlen Ochoa-Lopez was found strangled to death with her unborn child carved out of her body. Clarisa Figueroa, 46, who met the 19-year-old on Facebook, and her daughter, Desiree Figueroa, 24, were both hit with murder charges.
