HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A Henrico woman was arrested Tuesday and charged with killing her newborn twins more than 15 years ago.

35-year-old Darnesha Barry was arrested at her job at a Henrico bank, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Berry is accused of killing the newborns at a dormitory at St. Paul's College in Lawrenceville.

The newborn twins, a boy and a girl, were found dead in a trash room at the Holt Hall dorm back in February 1998. Investigators believe the babies were born in a bathroom in the dorm, killed and thrown down a trash chute.

The Times-Dispatch reports that Berry faces two counts of first degree murder.
