A second dead baby was found in a freezer Tuesday at the same home in southern Spain where the frozen body of another newborn was discovered earlier this month.
The mother has been in custody since the first infant was found.
The husband of the accused came upon the second baby in another freezer at their home in the town of Pilas, sources involved in the case told Efe.
Sara L.H., 34, has already been charged with premeditated homicide in connection with the first baby.
In her statement, the woman admitted giving birth to the baby but denied killing it. She said it was a child she wanted but that she always believed was stillborn and kept in the freezer “so as not to let it go.”
The first body was also found by her husband while he was cleaning the house and his wife was at work.
Sara L.H. has two other children ages 11 and 14 who live in the same house.
The judge sealed the file for a month, and in line with the prosecutor’s plea, ordered her to be held in pretrial custody without bail.
