NEW YORK (PIX11) –  Baby Hope’s accused killer is due in court Thursday.

Prosecutors are expected to unveil an indictment against her cousin, 52-year-old Conrado Juarez.

He later recanted and blamed another relative for her death.

The child’s body was found in 1991 in a cooler alongside an upper Manhattan highway.
