20-40 years for woman who hid baby remains

Published: Thu, August 4, 2011 @ 1:51 p.m.

READING, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder in connection with the deaths of five newborns whose skeletal remains were found at her home.

Forty-five-year-old Michele Kalina pleaded guilty to one-count of third-degree murder in a Reading courtroom today. She also pleaded guilty to abuse of a corpse and concealing the death of a child.

The defense says Kalina was abused by her father as a child.

The hearing comes a year after her teen daughter found the remains in a locked closet.

Authorities say DNA tests show most, if not all, of the five babies were conceived through a longtime affair with a co-worker. Neither he nor Kalina’s husband knew about the pregnancies.

I truly hate what this world has become. So many tragic events happening. 5 babies??? I mean, c'mon. Our children are dying at the hands of their parents, other countries are using their children as soldiers, brainwashing them, children are starving by the thousands in other countries - not to mention here on our own soil...isn't there SOMETHING that can be done??? Every day I get more and more heartsick over how little regard for life there is in this world. If there is a God up there, he is keeping watch and taking notes!
