French mum 'relieved' after admitting killing babies
The French mother who admitted killing eight of her newborn babies is relieved that her secret is finally out in the open, her lawyer said Friday.
Dominique Cottrez, 45, has been charged with murder after police found the skeletal remains of eight infants in plastic bin bags buried in a garden and hidden under household clutter in a garage.
"She doesn't have to carry this on her conscience any more, and that's a kind of relief," her lawyer Frank Berton told reporters, adding that she was "tired, worn out and battered down" after her questioning.
