(CNN) - Police say they now know why a Utah mother killed six babies over the course of a decade  immediately after she gave birth to each one.

Investigators now say Megan Huntsman was a meth addict when she killed the infants between 1996 and 2006 and hid the bodies in the garage.

Prosecutors say Huntsman gave birth to seven babies, one was stillborn and the others murdered.

Huntsman reportedly told detectives she killed the babies because she couldn't afford to care for them while supporting her drug habit.

She then allegedly hid each of the bodies in a garage and told no one about the pregnancies.

Police say although her husband lived in the home the entire time, he never knew about the pregnancies or the bodies.
