    The widow of a cardiac surgeon shot and killed at a Boston hospital by his patient's son has given birth to a baby girl less than three months after the doctor's death.

    Brigham and Women's Hospital announced Monday that Mikaela Jane Davidson was born April 4.

    Mikaela's father, Dr. Michael Davidson, was killed at the hospital on January 20, leaving behind his wife Dr. Terri Halperin, two daughters, aged 10 and 8, and a 2-year-old son.

    "At a time when my children and I are completely heartbroken over the loss of Michael, we are finding joy in Mikaela's arrival," Halperin said in a statement.

    Police say Davidson was shot by Stephen Pasceri, who then killed himself. Relatives say Pasceri may have held Davidson responsible for the death of his mother.
