MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) - Police have found remains of five infants in the village of Berezovsky, Sverdlovsk region, a spokesman told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
"The report about the gruesome find in a house backyard came to the Berezovsky police on Wednesday," regional police spokesman Valery Gorelykh said.
A group of detectives led by district police chief Major Alexander Surin came to the scene.
"Police zeroed in on a woman working as a janitor at a local factory and her husband who had no criminal record on file. When questioned, they admitted that in 1982, 1986, 1992, 1994 and 1997 they buried their newborn children," the spokesman said.
The woman claimed she had given birth to five and that she was unable to raise five more because her husband allegedly abused alcohol. According to preliminary information, she had given birth in a bath filled with water to drown the newborn, Gorelykh said.
The decision on opening a criminal case is pending the result of the check, he added.
