A 45-year-old German woman has been found guilty of manslaughter in the death of four of her newborn babies whose bodies were found at her home.

A total of eight babies were found dead last year at the woman's flat in the Bavarian town of Wallenfels, but prosecutors concentrated their case on proving her involvement in the death of four.

The Coburg state court sentenced the woman, whose name was not released, to 14 years in prison after finding her guilty, the dpa news agency reported.

The father, who had been charged as an accessory, was acquitted.
