Police in Utah have found the bodies of seven babies, most of them hidden in cardboard boxes in a garage.

Megan Huntsman, 39, of Pleasant Grove, Utah, was arrested Sunday morning on suspicion of multiple murders.

The Sault Lake Tribune reported that officials believe Huntsman gave birth to the children over a 10-year period and killed them.

Police said the corpses were found in six packages in the home in which Huntsman lived until 2011.

Pleasant Grove police went to Huntsman's home on Saturday after receiving a report of a dead infant from her ex husband, the Tribune reported.

He is believed to be the father of the dead kids but DNA test have yet to prove that.

His parents own the home and Huntsman's three teenage daughters still live there, a neighbour told the Tribune.

The ex found the bodies while cleaning out the garage on Saturday. He was planning to move back into the home this summer, the Tribune reported.

Six bodies in cardboard boxes were discovered in the garage when police executed a search warrant.
