Erika Murray, 35, laughed when she told the researchers how she & # 39; did not even think of her deceased baby & # 39; s & # 39; s. She seemed emotionally depicted in court on Friday
The Massachusetts mother accused of murder after the bodies of two babies and a fetus were found in her rat-infected home, laughed when she told the investigators how she & # 39; not even her deceased baby & # 39; 39; s thought & # 39 ;.
Erika Murray, 35, is accused of the death of two of the three dead babies found in the house with the garbage and littered Blackstone house in 2014.
She told researchers she panic & # 39; was when she gave birth to a stillborn baby – despite the fact that she previously denied having even more children than the four living young ones found in their homes.
And Murray, who was crying in court on Friday, admitted later not even thinking of her two other deceased children.
The four living children, ranging from five months to 13 years old, were removed from the house, which was eventually demolished.
A recorded recording of her first interview and a video of her second with trooper Shawn Murphy in September 2014 was played at court Friday, in which Murray initially insisted that she had no other children, miscarriages, or stillborn children.
But when Murphy told her that the skeletal remains of a child had been found in a cupboard, Murray was forced to admit that she had a child before the three-year-old lived in filth and that the baby was born to death.
She told the police that she panicked and did not know the sex of the baby, and added: I didn't know what to think, they didn't breathe, they didn't live.
& # 39; I didn't feel a heartbeat. I didn't think so. I felt like I was all alone here. I didn't know who to trust. & # 39;
The police then told Murray that they found the remains of two more children.
NBC Boston& # 39; S Alysha Palumbo reports that Murray, who was investigated to know when she had the other deceased children, replied: & # 39; I didn't even think about it. & # 39;
Her older children, who seemed to have maggots in their ears, did not know that the two younger children were brothers and sisters who were told a judge.
Murray laughed when the police asked her if her friend, Ray Rivera, was deaf after noticing that there were babies in the house.
She added: & # 39; He recently started questioning me and I just told him I was babysitting. & # 39;

The remains of one of the three found babies were discovered in this onesie, the court heard
Trooper Keith Egan told a judge on Thursday that he found the remains of a baby in a cardboard box
In harrowing testimony, she claims that she didn't tell anyone about the younger children because she & # 39; did not want to have any more problems & # 39; and admitted that no one washed their clothes. Neither had birth registration, the court heard.
When she investigated why her younger children had not seen a doctor, unlike their older siblings, Murray replied: & # 39; I don't know. & # 39;
She later claimed that she hadn't told her boyfriend because she was "just nervous about how he would respond".
Murray said she threw the placentas into the trash and cut the umbilical cords with scissors.
The remains of one of the three baby & # 39; s found in the case of the house of the horrors of Massachusetts was discovered in a filthy onesie, another was packed in madelot-stained sweatpants and a third was kept in a cardboard box, a medical researcher testified Thursday.
On Friday, the court heard that Murray admitted that at least one of those found dead was born alive.
Shocking images presented to the court showed the soiled clothes of which two of the babies would have been found after being hidden in a cupboard.
Medical examiner Robert Welton, who performed autopsies on the dead children, described how he found the remains of three babies in horrific circumstances on the third day of the trial.
On Wednesday, she broke into tears in a rare show after images of her children were projected to the courtroom.
But former Department of Children and Families researcher Catherine Francy testified Wednesday that Murray her three-year-old child & # 39; it & # 39; mentioned several times.

The house where Erika Murray lived and the remains of three babies were found in 2014. It took cleaning crews 90 hours over four days of work to empty Murray's house before heavy machines were brought in to put it on the to lay the ground
Dr. Welton told a judge that he saw the remains of the child left in the cardboard box pulled by the police from a cupboard. A second baby was also said to have been found in the same cupboard along with the remains of an animal.
The remains of a third child were also found in a second bedroom, said Dr. Welton.
One child seemed to be wrapped in sweat pants, another wearing a filthy onesie and a diaper.
The third was found wearing & # 39; infantwear & # 39; for a baby from eight to eleven pounds and a coat and was kept in the cardboard box, he said.

& # 39; I was never an overly decent person & # 39 ;, Murray told the police in a 2014 interview that was played in court on Friday.
Murray & # 39; s lawyer says there is no evidence that his client has committed a crime.
He also suggested the possibility that the children were stillborn and therefore not killed.
Defense lawyer Keith Halpern says that Murray has mental health problems that contributed to the condition of the house.
He said she had not called to law enforcement after the deaths when, according to reports, she panicked.
A judge decides on the case after Murray, who has not pleaded guilty, renounced her right to a jury.
Ramon Rivera, 39, the father of the children and Murray's resident friend, should also undergo child abuse in a separate proceeding.
