Police then searched Crews' apartment and rescued a newborn baby before charging the woman and her 32-year-old boyfriend, William Hoehn with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and giving false information.

The infant, named Haisley Jo, is in the care of family this week after spending the weekend with Greywind's parents for Grandparents Day.

Ashton Matheny, Haisley Jo's dad now has full legal custody of his baby girl.

Norbeta told PEOPLE that her daughter "loved everyone, she loved kids, her family - she would have been a wonderful mom". Haisley Jo was found by police in the apartment of Greywind's upstairs neighbors.

"It was a very lovely service befitting of Savanna", Matheny said.

Greywind's family released a statement on the court's ruling that reads, "Savanna's family is enjoying a wonderful shared relationship caring for Haisley Jo and spending many lovely moments bonding with her. Haisley Jo is their little shining star".

The child had remained in protective custody awaiting results of DNA tests that were conducted to determine whether Matheny and LaFontaine-Greywind were the parents.

Norberta said that she and her husband, Joe Greywind, were happy to meet their granddaughter, despite dealing with the pain of losing their daughter.

LaFontaine-Greywind, 22, disappeared on August 19 after going upstairs in her apartment building to help a neighbor who asked her to model a dress that the neighbor was sewing. They found a newborn baby and arrested one of the tenants, Brooke Lynn Crews.

Hoehn, (pictured), told police he came home to their bloodied apartment on August 19 and claimed Crews presented him with the baby girl saying: "This is our baby. This is our family".

He said he took garbage bags containing bloody shoes and his bloody towels and disposed of them away from the apartment complex, according to court documents filed on Monday. The suspects said the baby belonged to LaFontaine-Greywind. Greywind's body was found in the Red River.

LaFontaine-Greywind, 22, disappeared on Saturday, Aug. 19, while eight months pregnant.
