CALGARY - The Crown wants a Calgary mother who tossed three of her newborn children into the garbage to spend another 8 to 9 years in prison.

Meredith Borowiec gave birth to infants in 2008 and 2009 and their bodies were never found.

A third child born in 2010 survived.

Borowiec, who is 32, was found guilty of two counts of infanticide and she pleaded guilty today to aggravated assault in the third case.

Crown prosecutor Jayme Williams asked that Borowiec receive consecutive sentences.

The Crown submission is for 11 to 12 years with three years credit for time in custody.
