Megan Huntsman, a Utah woman who admitted to murdering six of her newborn babies and storing their bodies in her garage, was sentenced Monday to six terms of up to life in prison, the maximum possible sentence, The Associated Press reported.

Last April, Huntsman’s estranged husband found one infant’s body while cleaning the garage of the home the couple once shared in Pleasant Grove, near Salt Lake City. Police soon found six others. Prosecutors said that one baby had been stillborn but that Huntsman had killed the rest.

Huntsman, 40, told police she had strangled or suffocated the infants and lost count of how many, court documents said.

In February, she pleaded guilty to six counts of murder.
