Berlin: A German woman has admitted to police that she had killed "several" of her babies immediately after they were born.
The 45-year-old woman was arrested on Saturday as the possible mother of eight babies whose mortal remains were found in the home where she had lived in Bavaria state, Efe news agency reported.
The suspect who was sentenced to imprisonment without bail on suspicion of multiple murders, was located from the small town of Wallenfels where the little bodies were found wrapped in towels and plastic bags.
The case came to light on Thursday when a neighbour found human remains, which turned out to be those of eight babies, though as yet neither their sex nor date of death has been established.
The babies' remains were found "in bad condition", according to sources close to the investigation.
The woman said that once when drunk she told how she hid the bodies of babies in her house, something she yelled out loud about in her last argument with her husband before disappearing.
