Woman admits concealing births of two babies whose bodies were discovered

In a recent session at Cardiff Crown Court, Egle Zilinskaite, aged 30, has acknowledged concealing the birth of two babies in Bridgend. Alongside this admission, she also pleaded guilty to two charges of obstructing the lawful and respectful burial of deceased bodies.

The distressing revelation unfolded as Zilinskaite, residing on Crwys Road, Cardiff, admitted to the concealment of two infant births. The babies, referred to as Baby A and Baby B during the court proceedings, were discovered deceased at an address in Maes-Y-Felin, Wildmill, Bridgend, in November 2022. The charges against Zilinskaite extend over a period spanning from 1 January 2017 to 26 November 2022.

During the court appearance, a 49-year-old man named Zilvinas Ledovskis, hailing from Phoebe Road, Swansea, contested all charges brought against him and maintained his plea of not guilty. He is set to face trial later this year, with proceedings scheduled for 25 November.

The defendants, both represented via a Lithuanian interpreter, confirmed their personal details—names, dates of birth, and addresses—before entering their respective pleas. Following the hearing, both Zilinskaite and Ledovskis were granted bail pending further legal proceedings.
