A woman has been charged with two more counts of concealing the birth of a child after the discovery of remains in two attics earlier this year.

Ann Mahoney, 63, from Merthyr Tydfil, has already been charged with one offence of endeavouring to conceal the birth of a child she had delivered by disposing of the body.

The offences date from January 1959 until May of this year.

Three babies' remains were found in two houses on the town's Gurnos estate.

Ann Mahoney appeared before Merthyr Tydfil magistrates on Tuesday via a video link for a hearing which lasted just six minutes.

She was committed to stand trial at Merthyr Crown Court.

The next hearing will be on August 26th. Her bail was extended. No plea was taken.
