Woman jailed for killing three of her babies


A Czech woman has been convicted of killing her three newborn babies and sentenced to 24 years in prison.

Anna Dusikova, 25, was convicted of killing one baby girl and two baby boys in 2012, 2013 and this year, said Simona Tesarova, spokeswoman for the regional court in the city of Brno.

Acting on a tip from medical workers, police inspected her boyfriend's house in the south-eastern village of Dolni Dunajovice in February, finding the dead body of the latest newborn as well as the remains of the two others.

Dusikova, who pleaded guilty, can still appeal.
