Michigan mom blurts out in court ‘Yes I did kill her,’ child stuffed in freezer
(WXYZ.COM) DETROIT, Mich. – Outbursts continues throughout a court hearing Thursday from a Detroit mother accused of killing her two children during a custody hearing.
The first outbursts from Mitchelle Blair happened around the time the court played a recording of her surviving son saying that his sister, Stoni, raped him and put poop on his head.
She was being escorted out of the courtroom after yelling “That’s what your daughter did to my son…” at the children’s father. She then yelled, “Yes, I did kill her.”
Her 8-year-old son also testified that his mother would whip him with a cord and hit his surviving sister with a hammer. He said he witnessed Blair put alcohol on Stoni and then run hot water over her body.
Judge Edward J. Joseph says the boy’s statements are straightforward and that there is an adequate amount of “trustworthiness.”
Later in the day, Blair was brought back into court only to have another outburst toward the children’s father. At one point, she even got on the floor. Blair was shortly escorted out.
Police say 35-year-old Mitchelle Blair killed two of her four children–and stuffed their bodies in a freezer.
The bodies of 13-year-old Stoni Blair and 9-year-old Stephen were discovered during an eviction.
Now the state wants to terminate Blair’s parental rights to her surviving kids.
Those children, a 17-year-old girl and the 8-year-old boy, have been in protective custody since March.
