A 41-year-old woman from Amersfoort was acquitted on appeal of manslaughter on her two newborn babies. The bodies of the two children were found in her home in 2014. The Court of Appeal in Den Bosch did not consider manslaughter proven. Experts testified that the babies were likely stillborn. The Public Prosecutor demanded institutionalized psychiatric care against the woman, NOS reports.

The babies were born in 2002 and 2004. The mother, Johanna H., put the bodies in a cookie tin and a beauty case and did not report their deaths to the police until 2014.

A 66-year-old man from Heerlen was sentenced on appeal to 10 months in prison, five of which conditionally suspended, for hiding his mother's body in her home for nearly 2.5 years so that he could keep cashing her pension. The court in Den Bosch also ordered him to pay 15,500 euros in compensation to his mother's pension insurer, according to the ruling.

The court in Limburg previously sentenced the man to six months in prison and ordered him to pay 40 thousand euros in compensation.
