Berlin – A couple have gone on trial in Germany after the remains of eight babies were found at their apartment in Bavaria last year.

The 45-year-old mother, identified only as Andrea G, is charged with four counts of murder in the trial at the Coburg state court. Her 55-year-old husband, Johann G, is charged with being an accessory to murder.

Prosecutors say they couldn't establish whether the four other infants were actually born alive.

The couple have three living children, and each has two from previous marriages.
