PROVO, Utah (AP) — A Utah woman accused of killing six of her newborns and storing their bodies in her garage appeared in court Monday.

Attorneys for 39-year-old Megan Huntsman postponed until October a decision about whether to request an evidence hearing in her case.

Police say Huntsman was heavily into a meth addiction when she strangled or suffocated the infants. The killings took place from 1996 to 2006.

Pleasant Grove police say she wasn’t worried about the babies’ health but simply didn’t want to care for them.

Her lawyer Anthony Howell has declined to comment on the allegations.

Authorities think a seventh baby found in her Pleasant Grove garage was stillborn.

Huntsman is in jail on $6 million bail, charged with six counts of first-degree murder. She has not yet entered a plea.
