An evil mother killed her newborn babies by dumping them into plastic buckets and filling them with concrete, according to police in Japan.

Osaka police said that they have arrested 53-year-old Mayumi Saito after being accused of murdering her four children and keeping their bodies encased in concrete buckets for more than 20 years.

Saito is facing charges of murder and transporting dead bodies.

According to the police investigation, Saito and her boyfriend had two sons.

Saito went on to have four additional children.

She never reported the births.

Police believe that Saito killed each child immediately after birth by placing the infant in a plastic bucket and filling it with wet concrete.

She then hid the plastic bucket in a closet at her home.

Saito told police that she killed her children because she could not afford to raise them.

She thought about committing suicide but held back because she had to take care of her two sons.

Now that her sons can take care of themselves, she confessed her crimes to the police.
