The young girl, Luana Ketlen died on December 11 after she was admitted to hospital suffering abdominal pains before medics discovered she was five months pregnant. Police later revealed the young girl had been raped by her father amid years of abuse.
Unfortunately, the young girl died en route to hospital after doctors diagnosed her with cirrhosis of the liver, water on the lungs and low blood pressure.
After inducing her into labour her premature baby was successfully delivered by doctors.
A warrant was soon issued for the arrest for her father, Tome Faba, 36 who went on the run following his daughter’s death.
Mr Faba was arrested in the town of Coari a week later and was transferred to court where he was charged with manslaughter and chid abuse.
Coari police chief Jose 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.”
Mr Barradas did also state the family had reported the abuse to social services after discovering the pregnancy.

They only reported the offence when the girl’s body notified her body changing physically.
However, the young girl died before an arrest warrant could be issued.
The police chief added: “Members of the family tried to step in and protect the child by alerting social services.
“They reported the abuse to police and a warrant was issued for Tome’s arrest but before it could be executed Luana’s health deteriorated and she died shortly after childbirth.”
