Berlin: German police say a 45-year-old woman has admitted killing several of the eight babies whose bodies were found at an apartment in the northeast Bavarian town of Wallenfells.
Upper Franconia police said in a statement Saturday that the unnamed woman confessed after her arrest in a nearby village late Friday.
A judge yesterday ordered the woman detained on suspicion of seven counts of murder. A 55-year-old man who was with her was released without charge.
Police said investigators were still trying to determine how the babies which had been wrapped in towels and plastic bags died and who their father or fathers are.
