What Did Mitchelle Blair Do?

A native Detroit, Michigan mother confessed to the killing of her two young children before hiding their bodies inside of a deep freezer found in her apartment made her first court appearance on Tuesday. 35-year-old Mitchelle Blair was arraigned on Tuesday inside of a Wayne County Court room, and was told by the county Judge the allegations against the mother were “heinous” and the nature of the charges warranted the need to set bail at 1 million dollars.

Blair has been charged with five child-abuse related charges and at this point faces up to life in prison if she is convicted. Blair did not face the judge face to face, but did appear via video phone from the local jail, standing their stone faced as the charges and bail were explained to her.

What Are The Charges Against Mitchelle Blair?

What are the charges against Mitchelle Blair?

Blair was charged with four counts of first-degree child abuse and one count of committing first-degree child abuse in the presence of another child. Those charges could be upgraded to murder pending the outcome and results of the autopsies that are being performed on two of the children.

Who are the two children that were found deceased in the freezer?

The two children that were found deceased in the freezer were identified by prosecutors as a 13-year-old female named Stoni Ann Blair, and her 9-year-old brother Stephen Gage Berry. Earlier reports stated that they were 11 and 15 years old, but it was determined that those would be the ages if the children were still alive. Prosecutors positively identified the children and their ages, however at this time they are unable to determine when the children were killed, but it appears that they have been in the freezer for at least 2 years.

How were the children discovered after two years?

A bail officer and a crew were sent over to the apartment on the east side of Detroit for the purpose of evicting Blair from the apartment. As they walked in the door; the crew noticed a chest freezer and inside they found the bodies of the young children on Tuesday morning. At the time of the finding the mother was nowhere to be found, it wasn’t until a neighbor told authorities where the mother was, that they were able to locate her. Two other children lived in the home, a 17-year-old daughter and her 8-year-old brother. Earlier reports stated that two of the children were twins while the other two were singletons, this however has been proven to be incorrect and the correct ages of the children were discovered.

Where are the other two children?

Blair’s other two children were living in the home at the time of the killing, as well as within the two years or so that their siblings were in the freezer. The children have since been taken into protective custody with the Department of Family Services, which was confirmed by the prosecutor’s office. It was ordered on Tuesday that Mitchelle Blair have absolutely no contact with the living children, their relatives, or the neighbors.
