Utah woman arrested after 7 dead babies found

Posted: Updated:
PLEASANT GROVE, UTAH (AP) -- Police accused a Utah woman of killing seven babies she gave birth to over 10 years after they found the tiny bodies stuffed in cardboard boxes in the garage of her former home.
  
Megan Huntsman lived in the Pleasant Grove home until three years ago and was arrested Sunday. Police say the 39-year-old birthed the infants from 1996 to 2006.
  
Police Capt. Michael Roberts says officers responded to a call Saturday from Huntsman's estranged husband about a dead infant at the home about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City. Officers then discovered the six other bodies.
  
Roberts says the man had lived with Huntsman but isn't a person of interest.
  
Huntsman was booked into jail on six counts of murder. Roberts says it wasn't clear if she has an attorney.
