PLEASANT GROVE, Utah – Investigators say they have revealed shocking details involving the killing of six infants over the course of a decade.

Prosecutors say Megan Huntsman gave birth to seven babies between 1996 and 2006.

One of those was stillborn and officials say the others were murdered.

Huntsman reportedly told detectives she killed the infants because she couldn’t afford to care for them while supporting her drug habit.

Authorities say she was addicted to meth during that time.

Investigators say Huntsman hid each of the bodies in a garage and told no one about the pregnancies.

Police say although her husband lived in the home the entire time, he never knew about the pregnancies or the bodies.
