A Detroit woman who survived being shot and set on fire has given birth the same day her accused attackers are charged.

22-year-old Latonya Bowman had an emergency C-section Tuesday to deliver her son.

She is recovering in stable condition but sources said the baby is in intensive care.

Bowman was nine months pregnant when she met with her ex-boyfriend, the baby’s father, Saturday at a home in Warren on Sherman Street.

Two men, both 22, have been arraigned in DETROIT in connection with the vicious attack on a pregnant woman.

Jamal Rogers, (seen on left) the father of the child, and his roommate Antonio Mathis, are charged in the crime. Both men have criminal records.

Police said the two were in the garage when another man put a gun to Bowman’s head, blindfolded her and bound her hands and feet with duct tape.

She was then driven in her own SUV to a vacant house in Detroit, doused in lighter fluid and set on fire.

Police said as Bowman tried to roll on the ground to put out the flames, she was shot in the shoulder.

As she lay burning and wounded, she played dead until her two attackers fled, police said.

She then drove herself to a gas station, then her mother’s house before she was taken to a hospital.

“This is one of the most disturbing, maniacal, difficult-to-wrap-your-head-around crimes we’ve had in our city,” said Deputy Warren Police Chief Louis Galasso.

Investigators say Anthony Mathis and Jamal Rogers , who is the baby’s father, began devising the plan to attack Bowman in March.

Rogers allegedly didn’t want to have a third child with a third woman.

They were both charged Tuesday with assault with intent to murder, conspiracy to commit homicide, felony firearm, unlawful imprisonment and conspiracy to commit unlawful imprisonment

Both were denied bond.
