How Could She? Mother Accused in Deaths of Infants

Wednesday, 4/16/2014

Megan Huntsman, 39, admitted she either strangled or suffocated six of her children, wrapped their bodies in towels or shirts and then put them in plastic bags before entombing them in the garage. Infanticide is when women kill a single newborn, often after an unexpected pregnancy and generally do not do it again. Hunstman will not be the first convicted of serial infanticide. Although it is rare, it happens all over the globe. Hunstman was arrested on six counts of murder and is being held on $6 million bail. Authorities said a seventh baby appears to have been stillborn. It is unclear how she was able to conceal so many pregnancies from her estranged husband and three older daughters.
