MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee prosecutors have charged a 60-year-old woman with suffocating three babies who investigators initially believed died from sudden infant death syndrome more than 30 years ago. Prosecutors say in charging documents released Friday the cases were reopened in 2015 after Nancy Moronez's daughter told police her mother confessed to suffocating Moronez's son with a garbage bag in 1980. Investigators say the two other infants died in 1984 and 1985 while Moronez was their baby-sitter.

The jury rejected Popp's insanity defense.
