WINNIPEG —; A DNA expert has testified there is “very strong evidence” that Andrea Giesbrecht is the mother of some of the babies found in a Winnipeg storage locker.

Christine Crossman, a forensic biologist, testified at Giesbrecht’s trial on Wednesday afternoon.

Crossman said there was evidence of varying degrees of strength showing all six babies were Giesbrecht’s.

DNA from the infant remains was compared to a soiled sanitary napkin taken from Giesbrecht’s home and a sample given by her husband.

    Test results yielded strong evidence showing five of the babies belonged to Giesbrecht and her husband and moderately strong evidence the sixth also belonged to them.

    Under cross-examination from Giesbrecht’s lawyer, Crossman admitted she didn’t use a sample obtained directly from Giesbrecht.
