Andrea Giesbrecht has been found guilty of disposing of the remains of six infants in a U-Haul storage locker.
“All of these children were likely born alive. There is no evidence of complications in these pregnancies,” provincial court Judge Murray Thompson said Monday in finding the 42-year-old Winnipeg woman guilty on six charges of disposing of a body of a dead child with intent to conceal the delivery.
Each charge carries a maximum sentence of two years behind bars. Giesbrecht will remain free on bail until her sentencing hearing.
Her defence lawyer, Greg Brodsky, said Giesbrecht is content the judge reached a conclusion in her case.
“She’s not happy with the result of the conclusion, but she’s happy that it’s coming to an end,” he said.
When asked if he knew why his client kept the bodies of her dead children in a locker, Brodsky said, “No.”
Brodsky said his client will wait until she hears details of the sentence before deciding whether to appeal.
