A Swedish mother was sentenced to three years' jail today for stangling her two new-born babies to death and then keeping their bodies in her freezer.

The killings were uncovered earlier this year when police found the frozen corpse of one of the newborns in a wooded area outside Stockholm.

Police raided the apartment of Helena Pettersson, 31, and uncovered a second dead newborn in the freezer.
