READING, Pa. (AP) – Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania woman who secretly conceived several children through an extramarital affair killed at least 4 of her newborns, then kept their remains in coolers or encased in concrete in her closet until family members found them this year.

Berks County officials on Monday announced homicide and aggravated assault charges against 44-year-old Michele Kalina of Reading. They allege that she hid at least six pregnancies from her husband and longtime boyfriend.

Authorities say DNA tests show the bones found in a locked closet came from five babies, at least 4 of whom were born alive. The boyfriend fathered three and possibly 4 of the victims. Tests on the fifth baby were inconclusive.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday. Public defender Holly Feeney declined to comment Monday.
