Slain woman's family haunted by ride with stranger
AP Interview: Family of slain pregnant woman haunted by her decision to get in stranger's car
By The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) ' A Milwaukee family says they can't understand why their pregnant relative got into a vehicle with a woman who's accused of killing her and cutting her fetus from her womb.

The family of 23-year-old Maritza Ramirez-Cruz told The Associated Press on Tuesday they didn't understand why she got in the suspect's car. Her brother-in-law, Josue Garcia, says she'd never accept a ride from a stranger.

Her husband, Christian Mercado, says his wife was a good mother and a kind person. He says the two planned to grow old together, but now he'll raise three young children alone.

Investigators say the suspect killed Ramirez-Cruz and took her baby to try to pass him off as her own. The baby also died.

Funerals for Ramirez-Cruz and the baby are scheduled for Friday.
