Police: 4 babies born alive, then killed, by Pa. mom

READING, Pa. - October 25, 2010

Authorities say 44-year-old Michele Kalina of Reading conceived the babies through an extramarital affair with a man unaware of her pregnancies.

They say the nurse's aide also bore a daughter with him who was given up for adoption in 2003.

A call to her public defender was not immediately returned on Monday.

Kalina and her husband have a teenage daughter and had a son who died in 2000 after a long illness.

Police say the daughter and husband found the remains in a closet, some in concrete and some in a plastic cooler.

Kalina has been in custody since August on abuse-of-corpse charges.
