A court in Brno on Wednesday convicted a 31-year-old woman of murdering three newborn babies, and sentenced her to 22 years in prison. The court said that the woman killed her newborn twins in 2012 and hid their bodies in the basement of her family’s house in Vlasatice, south Moravia. A year later, she murdered another newborn girl. The police discovered the bodies last summer, acting on a tip from the woman’s gynaecologist. The woman said quoted difficult financial situation as her motive.
