Detroit Mother Guilty of Killing Two Children

The Detroit Free Press reported that a mother admitted to killing two of her children, whose bodies were discovered on March 24 this year. The children were put into a deep freezer in the Martin Luther King Apartments in Detroit, and were only discovered when a crew was carrying out orders of an eviction notice. Mitchelle Blair was in court in early June and began yelling loudly during her custody hearing. She has two other children, ages 8 and 17, who are fathered by two different men. Blair said she did not deny killing the other children, but that the fathers of the two living children were not there for the 8 and 17 year-old and should not be given custody. Blair went back to court on June 19th for charges of felony murder, first-degree premeditated murder, torture and child-abuse and is being held in the Wayne County Jail.
