A Massachusetts prosecutor says the bodies of three infants have been found in a filthy house where four other children were removed by authorities last month.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. announced the gruesome discovery Thursday night. Early said authorities don't know when or how the babies died and no one has been arrested in connection with their deaths.

Early said four other children, including a 6-month-old baby, were removed from the house last month after a neighbor notified police about their living conditions. Those children are in state custody.

He said the examination of the house has been complicated by what he called "deplorable" conditions.
