(KSL News) -- A woman who carried around the corpses of her three children for more than a decade, including the time she lived in Utah, has now been charged with their murders.

Diane O'dell told investigators that, while living in New York between 1960 and 1984, she gave birth to four children, all of whom died shortly after birth.

The remains of three of those children were found abandoned in a storage shed in Arizona last week.

O'Dell currently has eight living children.
