PITTSBURGH — The newborn daughter of a Western Pennsylvania woman who was pregnant when she was fatally shot last month has now also died.
The Cambria County coroner will investigate the death of Aubreanna Kovalcik, but state police don’t expect autopsy results for six to eight weeks due necessary laboratory tests.
The baby’s mother, 23-year-old Caressa Kovalcik, died after police say her boyfriend shot her in their Windber apartment on May 31. The baby was delivered by C-section shortly before Caressa Kovalcik died, and was later moved to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, where the baby died early Friday.
Twenty-five-year-old Denver Blough remained in the Cambria County Prison Friday on criminal homicide and other charges in the shooting, which he has said was an accident.
Police say any decision on additional charges will depend on the autopsy results.
