Sentencing for Andrea Giesbrecht, who disposed of babies in storage locker, to be live streamed

Andrea Giesbrecht appealing conviction for concealing infant remains

A judge has given the OK for media to live stream the sentencing hearing for Andrea Giesbrecht, who disposed of the remains of six infants in a U-Haul storage locker.

The 42-year-old Winnipeg woman was found guilty in February on six charges of disposing of the body of a dead child with intent to conceal the delivery.

That verdict was also live streamed.

The sentencing hearing is set for July 7. It is expected that submissions will take place that day and then court will reconvene for the judge's decision on another date.

On Oct. 20, 2014, staff at a U-Haul facility on McPhillips Street discovered the decomposing remains in a storage locker rented by Giesbrecht.

Their bodies were found in plastic grocery bags, in some cases wrapped in towels and then sealed in household containers. One of the infants was found encased in concrete, and another in a substance similar to laundry detergent.

What caused the deaths of the infants could not be determined because the remains were too badly decomposed.
