BLACKSTONE, Mass. — A woman who lived in a squalid Massachusetts home where bodies of three infants were found among vermin and piles of soiled diapers is facing charges including fetal death concealment.

The Associated Press reported Erika Murray, 31, was arrested Thursday.

Detectives investigating a case of reckless endangerment of children found the bodies at a house in Blackstone.

Four children were removed from the home two weeks earlier. Police said Murray is the mother of those children, but no birth records existed for the two youngest children.

Police found the body of a dead infant in a closet on Wednesday. Two more dead infants were found Thursday.
