INDIANAPOLIS - The widow of a young man killed on the city’s west side announced she has given birth to their daughter.

Jennifer Trapuzzano posted a picture with her newborn daughter Cecilia Marie onto Facebook on Sunday.

Cecilia was born Friday and now both mom and baby are home and doing well, according to the Facebook post.

Nathan Trapuzzano, 24, was fatally shot early in the morning of April 1 on West 16th Street while he was on his morning walk.

Police have arrested a 16-year-old in connection to the shooting. Prosecutors filed adult charges of murder, felony murder, attempted robbery and carrying a handgun without a license against the teenage suspect.

His probation officer later resigned amid criticism that he failed to report violations by the boy.

Today in the Catholic Church, we celebrated the canonization into sainthood of two wonderful popes, Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII, on this most special Divine Mercy Sunday. As we celebrate this great day, I would like to share another great celebration - Miss Cecilia Marie Trapuzzano is here  Born April 25th. We are both home now and are doing so well. She has provided me with so many smiles already. I can feel Nate smiling down on us and am so grateful for this most wonderful gift he blessed me with. Thank you all so much for your continued prayers, I am so humbled by how many have reached out to us and shown us so much love. The prayers were especially appreciated as I brought our little girl into this world.
