Mother suspected of killing 3 newborns in Poland

WARSAW — Prosecutors in northern Poland on Wednesday were questioning a woman suspected of killing her three newborn boys whose bodies were found in the family’s freezer.

Police spokesman Slawomir Nojman said that the woman, identified as 41-year-old Lucyna D. from the town of Lubawa, has confessed to killing the infants. If convicted of homicide, she could face a life sentence.

The woman said she kept the bodies in the freezer because she ‘‘could not part from them,’’ said police spokeswoman Anna Fic.

Forensic examinations are seeking to determine the cause of death and whether the babies were born alive. The woman’s husband was also arrested and being questioned.

A neighbor alerted police to her suspicions when she saw no baby resulting from Lucyna D.’s pregnancy.

Police searched the home and found the bodies in the freezer.
