WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Prosecutors in northern Poland are questioning a woman suspected of killing her three newborn boys whose bodies were found in the family’s freezer.
Police spokesman Slawomir Nojman said today that the woman, identified as Lucyna D., 41, from Lubawa, has confessed to killing the infants. If convicted, the woman could face a life sentence.
Police spokeswoman Anna Fic says the woman said she kept the bodies in the freezer because she “could not part from them.” Forensic examinations are seeking to determine the cause of death, and whether the babies were born alive and healthy.
The woman’s husband was also questioned. The couple have four children between 6 and 22 years old.
