The widow of slain NYPD Officer Wenjian Liu gave birth early Tuesday to a baby girl conceived from sperm retrieved and frozen in the hours before his death in December 2014, according to a high ranked law enforcement source.
Liu's widow, Pei "Sanny" Xia Chen, named the baby "Angel" as a tribute to her slain hero husband - whose police hat is now next to her bed at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on the Upper East Side, said the pal, fellow cop widow Maria Dziergowski. Detective Liu's parents, Wei Tang Liu and Xiu Yan Li, were there as Sanny Liu gave birth at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, police said.

He had posted on Instagram that he wanted to put "wings on pigs" and referenced Eric Garner, whose police chokehold death led to protests against the NYPD.
