However, the operation did not save the life of her son, who died shortly as he was removed from the womb.

Lyuba's family expressed their grief in a statement which expressed a feeling of anger and disappointment.

Her brother, Aleksandr Katane, gave the statement which reads, "It's hard for us to once again hear the details of Lyuba's senseless murder. Her family, friends and loved ones feel deep sadness, loss and anger. "

"It has been especially difficult to learn that her son survived for a small time after the doctors tried to save him. Lyuba was going to name him Ellis,"

"We are assured knowing that we live in a country where justice will be served and we are grateful that the children are both safe and cared for by Lyuba's parents," 

"As the report states my sister Alisa, 14, escaped the house as Lyuba was murdered so we are relieved to know that she is also safe. "

"Currently the entire family is focused on celebrating Lyuba's life at her funeral and also caring for her two remaining children."
