German woman jailed after 8 baby corpses found in her apartment

A German woman has been sentenced to 14 years behind bars after eight baby corpses were found wrapped in towels in her apartment.

The 45-year-old was sentenced in a Bavaria Court on Wednesday after being convicted of manslaughter.

According to the Guardian, the woman gave birth to eight children between 2003 and 2013.


She was charged with only four of the eight infants deaths, with it unable to be established if the other four infants were alive or stillborn due to the severity of decomposition.

The woman lived with her estranged husband, who was acquitted on charges of being an accessory.

The gruesome discovery was made by police following a tip-off from a neighbour.
