PLEASANT GROVE, Utah – A Utah mother who admitted she killed her babies and then kept their bodies in her Pleasant Grove garage for years may spend the rest of her life behind bars.

The judge decided Megan Huntsman will spend up to life in prison Monday.

She faced 5-years-to-life in prison for each of the six babies she admitted she killed.

Monday the judge said three of Huntsman’s sentences would run concurrently and three would run consecutively.

That means she will most likely spend 20-years-to-life in prison.

Huntsman pleaded guilty to murdering six of her newborns and claims the seventh baby was stillborn.

Her estranged husband found the bodies last April while cleaning out the garage at the home they once shared.
