Utah Woman Gets Up to Life in Prison in Deaths of 6 Newborns

Megan Huntsman, the Utah woman who pleaded guilty to killing six of her newborn babies and hiding their bodies in her garage was sentenced to up to life in prison Monday, The Associated Press reported. Huntsman, 40, pleaded guilty to six counts of murder in February. She said in court papers she wanted to take responsibility in the deaths. She told police earlier she was too addicted to methamphetamine to care for more children. The judge gave her the maximum sentence — at least 30 years and up to life in prison. A parole board will decide her release date later.
