WORCESTER, Massachusetts (AP) — A man who says he is the father of a baby who was cut from her slain mother's womb says he wants custody.

A hearing is scheduled in Worcester Juvenile Court on Monday to determine who should get temporary custody of the 4-pound (1.8 kilogram) baby girl. Her mother, 23-year-old Darlene Haynes, was found slain in her Worcester apartment last Monday.

The baby was found two days later with Julie Corey at a New Hampshire homeless shelter. Corey has been charged with kidnapping.

Roberto Rodriguez, Haynes' estranged boyfriend, told The Associated Press outside Juvenile Court on Monday that he wants custody of the baby, as well as an 18-month-old girl he had with Haynes.

The infant is in the custody of Massachusetts child welfare officials. DNA tests are being done to establish paternity.
