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.
