Dominique Cortez, the mother murderer, admitted that she stifled voluntarily eight of her infants and hid their corpses in her ex-house in the northern village of Villers-au-Tertre, local prosecutors said.
The mother confessed that she did not want to have babies anymore and refused to see a doctor to get contraception, the prosecutors told local reporters, calling it "a non-standard case given the large number of newborns."
The eight newborns were found dead on Wednesday when new owners of the house discovered a bag containing human remains.
The 45-year-old mother of two girls, arrested on charges of deliberating offense against children under 15, is facing a sentence of life imprisonment.
Her husband, accused of not reporting the killings and hiding the bodies, was considered a witness and released.
