OCEAN CITY, Md. — A mother of four who is facing murder charges in the death of her new baby last week and is suspected in the killings of three infants whose remains were found on her property was denied bail Monday after pleading with the judge to free her on bond.
Meanwhile, investigators continued their search of the property, using a backhoe to search for shallow graves in the backyard. Although the search of the yard has not yet lead to the discovery of more bodies, police told FOX News Monday that cadaver dogs had indicated more remains could be found.
The bodies of four small infants were found at the home of Christy Freeman, 37, a woman who denied having been pregnant, even after she was taken to a hospital and doctors discovered a placenta and part of an umbilical cord, police said.
“They were not full-term children,” Barry Neeb, an Ocean City Police Department spokesman, said of all the babies.
