ROVO, Utah — A Utah woman accused of murdering six babies and hiding their bodies in boxes was charged Monday with six counts of first-degree felony murder, FOX 13 is reporting.

Megan Huntsman, 39, admitted to strangling or suffocating six of her own newborn babies immediately after giving birth to them over a 10-year span beginning in 1996.

The babies were discovered earlier this month.

Huntsman’s estranged husband Darren West, who recently came back to Utah after serving a stint in federal prison on drug charges, found the babies on April 12.

A seventh baby was stillborn, FOX 13 is reporting.

    That’s allot of lives lost before they were given even just one chance. I am sorry but if after one she should have either quit, or used some kind of protection. To stand and act completely clueless is a poor excuse for her life. Jail would be the perfect place for her for the rest of her life. To let her know she was wrong and we know she was not clueless, but a cold blooded killer.

    Jail is not the place for this psycho…. a table hooked to lethal injection needles is more of a place for her…BAZINGA! Or maybe she can be target practice for a sniper team a few miles out so she has no idea when it will happen, but the sniper sure does!

    I pray to God that his merciful almighty may release you from jail and you will be a rehabilitated excellent human being and a better parent. God forgives and makes great!
