    I haven't followed this case very carefully, but according to the article, she was married. Surely their must have been some discussion regarding her husband. Did he get off without charges? Did he have no idea what was going on?

    I mean, of course I recognize there was a lot of awful dysfunction going on that birth control wouldn't have impacted, but a pregnancy every year for 18 years? My word.

    I just don't see why it isn't murder.
    Think about it.
    She gives birth, does something, baby dies.
    A year later, give or take, knowing what happened with the last birth, she does the same thing, again, another dead baby.
    A year later, give or take, knowing what happened with the last two births....and so on, and so on.
    How is this not murder??

    Provincial court Judge Murray Thompson reserved his decision. He's expected to deliver it on July 14.

    Just an FYI:

    an article from July 14th:

    Andrea Giesbrecht gets 8 1/2 years for concealing remains of 6 infants
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manito...tion-1.4204123

    Judge says police were unable to determine whether deaths occurred before or after birth....
    Andrea Giesbrecht has been sentenced to 8½ years in prison for concealing the remains of six infants in a storage locker in Winnipeg.
    With time already served factored in, Giesbrecht will spend another seven years and 10 months in prison.
    "Giesbrecht's moral culpability is extremely high," Judge Murray Thompson said at Friday's sentencing hearing.
    [.....]
    "She bagged each of the bodies, sealed them or encased them in cement or powder, all in an effort to contain the smell of human decomposition and decay," said Thompson (Judge).
    [.....]
    Thompson said each of the six infants represented six separate offences and Giesbrecht's moral culpability increased after the first offence. He sentenced her to six months for the first infant, one year for the second, and two years for each of the four other infants found, for a total of 9½ years.
    A sentence of that length would be "crushing" to Giesbrecht, Thompson said. He therefore reduced the sentence by one year, minus time served.
    ​Sentencing arguments were presented earlier this month. The Crown sought an 11-year sentence for Giesbrecht, while Brodsky requested she be spared any further jail time beyond the 168 days spent on remand between the day she was arrested and being granted bail.
