Luana Ketlen, rushed to hospital on December 11, suffering abdominal pains
Horrified medics discovered she was pregnant and decided to induce labour
Luana gave birth to a boy, but died while being taken for specialist treatment.
Luana who was sexually abused by her father for four years died while giving birth to his child, police in Brazil have said.
Schoolgirl Luana Ketlen died on December 11 after she was admitted to hospital suffering severe abdominal pains, before medics discovered she was pregnant.
Faba went on the run before being caught in the city of Coari a week later.
He appeared in court for the first time on December 27 charged with child abuse and manslaughter.
Faba’s family, who live on the outskirts of Coari, say they had no idea about the abuse.
The slightly-built teen was seven months pregnant when she was rushed to Coari regional hospital suffering from severe pains.
At a press conference, Coari police chief, José Barradas said:
The teenager lived with her parents in a rural area outside the city.
She did not realise, until two months ago when she began to feel pains in her abdomen, that she was five months pregnant.
Luana claimed she was ordered to go fishing with her father and was allegedly raped by him while there.
According to a family source, It was only when her body started to change and family members became suspicious that she could be pregnant that they uncovered the truth.
Luana was persuaded by an aunt to reveal who the culprit was. But when the girl’s mother heard the news she refused to believe her husband was the father of his daughter’s child.
