Utah Woman Murders Six Babies Over 10 Years

Posted: Updated:

PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Authorities say a Utah woman accused of killing six babies that she gave birth to over 10 years told investigators that she either strangled or suffocated the children and then put them inside boxes in her garage.
 
According to a probable cause statement released by police Monday, Megan Huntsman said that between 1996 and 2006, she gave birth to at least seven babies at her home and that all but one of them were born alive.
 
She said she killed them immediately after they were born, and put their bodies inside boxes. The statement said each baby was wrapped in either a towel or a shirt, and placed in a plastic bag.
 
Huntsman is being held on $6 million bail -- $1 million for each baby she's accused of killing.
