BLACKSTONE, Mass. (AP) — A woman who lived at a squalid Massachusetts home where the bodies of three infants were found has been ordered held without bail.
Not guilty pleas were entered Friday on behalf of 31-year-old Erika Murray on charges including fetal death concealment and witness intimidation. She isn’t charged in the deaths.
Meanwhile, the search continued for more possible bodies at the Blackstone home were four other children previously were removed.
The judge agreed to a request by a prosecutor to seal a file concerning a previous court appearance on reckless endangerment charges related to the two youngest of the four children taken from the home last month.
Murray’s lawyer, Keith Halpern, pointing to the conditions in the home, suggested that his client was mentally ill.
