PROVO, Utah (Reuters) - A Utah mother pleaded guilty to murder on Thursday in the slayings of six of her newborn infants whose remains were found stuffed inside cardboard boxes inside the garage of her former home last spring.

Megan Huntsman, who police said admitted to strangling or suffocating the six infants just after each was born over the course of a decade, entered her guilty plea to six counts of murder in a courtroom in Provo, Utah.
