Editor's Note: The District Attorney's office has told necn that the pretrial hearing has been rescheduled for May.
The Blackstone, Massachusetts, mother accused of causing the deaths of two of her babies and concealing the death of a third in a vermin-invested and trash-filled home is due in court for a pretrial hearing Monday.
Erika Murray has pleaded not guilty to all nine counts against her, including two murder charges.
All of the children were found stuffed in closets of her home, according to prosecutors.
Prosecutors say Murray had five children in seven years, and she wanted to hide her pregnancies because her boyfriend and father of the children didn't want any more kids.
They say she gave birth in a bathroom inside her home, alone and with no medical assistance. Her attorney says she did not kill any of her children.
Besides the three dead babies, investigators say there were four children living in the home.
They say the family was living in squalor, with feces and trash all over the place and the home was infested with vermin.
The two youngest children were neglected, including a 3-year-old girl who couldn’t walk or talk.
The judge has ordered Murray held without bail.
Raymond Rivera, the father of the children, faces charges of assault and battery causing substantial injury and reckless child endangerment. He is being held on $100,000 bail.
