Mother who killed her kids, put them in freezer pleads guilty
A DETROIT mother who killed her two children and placed their bodies in a freezer has pleaded guilty to both murders.
Mitchelle Angela Blair, 35, said on Monday she felt "no remorse" after killing her 9-year-old son Steven Gage Berry and 13-year-old daughter Stoni Ann Blair, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Blair told officials that she kicked and punched the 9-year-old boy, made him drink Windex, burned his genitals with hot water and hung him with a belt.
"I definitely meant to kill her. If I had a chance to do it again, I would," Blair said in front of the court.
The mother of four was ruled mentally competent to stand trial by state and independent psychiatrists. During yesterday's appearance, she said the two murdered children were "demons" and refused to claim them. She maintained that they abused one of their surviving siblings.
The surviving 17-year-old daughter was forced to place the 13-year-old's body in a freezer. She was also hit with a 2x4 and burned with a clothing iron. The surviving 8-year-old had scars on his back from abuse.
According to the Press, the surviving siblings endured years of abuse from Blair, who was charged on 17 counts, including felony murder, first-degree premeditated murder, torture and first-degree child abuse.
Blair was forcibly removed from a custody hearing this afternoon and faces life in prison without parole. She is expected back in court on 17 July.
