Eastern Germany woman confirms killing nine children

A woman suspected of killing nine kids found buried in eastern Germany has confirmed they were her own children. She also claimed unable to recall how it was done.

The 39-year-old woman, identified only as Sabine H., was arrested Sunday on suspicion of manslaughter after police found the nine bodies in flower pots and a fish tank in a village near the Polish border.

"She says she can't remember how they were killed because she drank heavily when the contractions began," prosecutor Annette Bargenda said at a news conference.

In at least seven cases, the woman "knows she put a covering over each child. She said she woke or sobered up only after the children were already buried," Bargenda said.

A police spokesman had said earlier Tuesday that the woman had admitted killing some of the children, but the spokesman later said that was incorrect.

Prosecutors suspect the woman killed all nine infants between 1988 and 2004 and hid their bodies in the flower pots and fish tank, some of which she had kept on the balcony of her home, the AP reports.
