A funeral will be held Saturday for the baby who died when his pregnant mother was stabbed last week in Southeast.

The apartment building where an eight-month pregnant mother was stabbed, killing her baby.

Police still don't have answers about who might have done it.

More than a week after the attack, still no answers as to who stabbed an eight-month pregnant woman, killing her baby…

The mother is no longer hospitalized, says the Rev. Anthony Motley, a family friend.

"She's doing much better, but now the healing begins," Motley.

He will try to bring words of comfort at a funeral tomorrow.

There's a call for people who might know who did this to come forward.

In the building where the attack happened, some neighbors, like Kevin Murray, remember the screams.

Murray is a first-aid instructor and he came to the woman's aid.

"I wrapped gauze around her stomach," Murray says. "We were just trying to keep her calm so that she wouldn't lose a lot of blood."

Police have surveillance images from inside and outside the building and have been showing them to family members, residents and neighbors.
