A PREGNANT woman was brutally killed after her baby boy was ripped out of her womb by a monster who said she would do "whatever it takes" to have a child.
Pamella Ferreira Andrade Martins, 21, who was eight months pregnant, was found dead at her home in Nova Holanda, Brazil yesterday after cops smashed down the door to her bathroom.
Officers were met with a scene of horror as they found the young woman butchered on the floor, with her stomach ripped open and her unborn baby missing.
An anonymous family member told local media that Pamela had been locked inside the bathroom by the perpetrator.
A 22-year-old woman, who has not been identified, has been arrested.
The suspect was admitted to hospital after checking into a nearby A&E unit allegedly carrying the dead baby.
'WHATEVER IT TAKES'
The woman told doctors that she had given birth to the baby boy herself and had fallen down the stairs with him, G1 reports.
But tests proved she had not been pregnant.
A knife was found in her handbag and she was seen with Pamela the day before she was killed, reports said.
Pamella's family told the cops that the suspect was desperate to have a child and claimed she "would get herself a child whatever it takes".
Pamela was married and had a two-year-old son, her family said.
Cops are continuing to investigate the deaths of Pamella and her child, and an autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of the baby's death.
