$6M bail set for Utah woman in dead babies case

CORRECTION Seven Dead Babies Arrest

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) — A judge has set a $6 million bail for a Utah woman accused of killing six babies she gave birth to over 10 years.

State Judge Steven Hansen set bail at $1 million for each child when Megan Huntsman appeared via video in a Utah courtroom Monday morning.

Prosecutors say 39-year-old Huntsman is being jailed on six counts of murder. It appears a seventh baby was stillborn.

Huntsman was arrested Sunday after police found the infants’ tiny bodies inside cardboard boxes in the garage of her former home in Pleasant Grove.

No other arrests have been made but prosecutors say the investigation remains open.
