PROVO, Utah (AP) - Defense lawyers say they’re negotiating with prosecutors for a plea deal in the case of a Utah woman accused of killing six of her newborn babies and storing their bodies in her garage.

A hearing in the case of 39-year-old Megan Huntsman was delayed for two weeks Monday.

She faces six counts of murder in the deaths discovered as her estranged husband cleaned the garage in April.

The Daily Herald of Provo reports defense attorney Jennifer Foresta said the two sides are working on the matter. Judge Darold McDade says the case could be resolved in the hearing rescheduled for Feb. 9.

Police have alleged Huntsman was addicted to methamphetamine when she killed the six infants over 10 years. Investigators say husband Darren West is the babies’ father, but he isn’t a suspect.
