Neighbors are in disbelief as they
learn someone who they saw every day is in custody for allegedly hiding
the remains of two babies in her closet.Michele Kalina was charged with two counts of abuse of a corpse.Investigators said it's still early in the investigation, but some have been wondering what's been going on."Two
weeks ago they pulled something out," said Emily Perez, whose aunt
lives across the hall from Kalina's first floor apartment in a high-rise
building in the 700 block of Court Street in Reading. "The coroner
came, pulled the stretcher out with a wooden box with a plastic
container."On July 29, Berks County detectives said they found in
Kalina's closet the remains of two babies that could be anywhere from
20 weeks in gestation to almost a month old. . "We were upset," said
Perez. "We were waiting for two weeks. We were asking, but no one would
give us any answers or anything. That's your neighbors."Perez said she saw Kalina almost every day and that she never really had any visitors."I don't know how they could do that to their child," said Perez.Other people in the building said they had no idea.Kalina
worked for Interim Health Care, a senior home care medical staffing
company, which had no comment on her arrest or how long she worked
there.But on the streets, people have their own perspectives."It's
just scary because I try to protect my kids the best that I can and you
should be happy that God's giving you kids," said Beatrice Medero.Investigators still won't say how or why Kalina had the remains or whether the bodies were related to her.Kalina is being held on $5 million bail.

A Pennsylvania woman pleaded guilty today to murdering one of her infant children after the skeletal remains of five babies were found in her home.

Michele Kalina, 45, expressed remorse at her sentencing but has not confessed to killing all five newborns she gave birth to secretly. A Berks County judge sentenced her to between 20 and 40 years in prison.

In July 2010, Kalina's husband and teenage daughter discovered containers in a storage closet in the family's Reading home that contained the remains of five infants. They were found in storage containers and an insulated cooler, according to court documents.

"One body was encased in concrete," Berks County District Attorney John Adams said. "It was a very bizarre case. The others were wrapped in garbage bags."

The skeletal remains were estimated to be from 32 weeks in gestation to newly born.

"There were five skeletal remains, but because of the condition of those skeletal remains it was very difficult to determine a cause of death. But we had enough information to charge her with one body," Adams told ABCNews.com.

In addition to the third degree murder charge, Kalina was found guilty of abusing the corpse of an infant and failing to report the death of a child.

Kalina, a home health nurse's aide, was carrying on an affair and neither her lover nor her husband knew about her pregnancies, according to court documents. Kalina gave birth to another child in October 2003 at St. Joseph's Medical Center and gave that child up for adoption, according to court documents.

Her husband of 25 years testified during Kalina's trial that he still loves his wife and plans to stay married to her, the Reading Eagle reported. He testified that they stopped being intimate with one another in 1992, the paper reported.

Her boyfriend, who she dated intermittently since 1996, has not been identified by authorities. When Kalina's stomach appeared bigger to her boyfriend, she told him it was a cyst, according to court documents. The boyfriend told authorities that the "cyst" returned at least two to three times, according to court records. It's unclear when Kalina gave birth to the children.

"Our investigation revealed that she hid these pregnancies and births from everyone," said District Attorney Adams in a press release. "Unfortunately, there are many questions that only Ms. Kalina can answer."

Kalina told authorities that her husband and daughter were forbidden from going into her closet and that she had "been meaning to clean that closet," according to court documents.

Her defense team claimed she was mentally ill and had suffered sexual and psychological abuse as a chilld.

A psychiatrist testified that Kalina remembers little if anything about the births of the infants, the Reading Eagle reported.

"She shows no emotion," said Dr. Jerome Gottlieb. "It's like she is talking about someone else."

Kalina's 19-year-old daughter also testified and described her mother as a good mother. Kalina also had a son born with cerebral palsy that died at age 13.

Why in the world didn't this POS woman use birth control or get fixed? I just don't understand why women murder babies they don't want multiple times when they could easily get sterilized or take birth control. I hope she rots in jail for all those sweet innocent babies that were murdered. A good mother she definately was NOT.
