Utah mother accused of killing six babies pleads guilty

Posted:
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah mother accused of killing six of her newborn babies and storing their bodies in her garage has pleaded guilty to murder.

The 39-year-old Megan Huntsman entered six guilty pleas Thursday morning in a court in Provo.

Huntsman will be sentenced April 20. She faces up to life in prison.

The agreement brings closure to a case that sent shockwaves through the quiet, mostly Mormon community where Huntsman stored the tiny bodies for more than a decade.

Her estranged husband found them in April 2014 in the small city of Pleasant Grove, Utah, south of Salt Lake City.

Authorities say a seventh baby found in her garage was stillborn.
