Mitchelle Blair, the 35-year old mother of four, arrived at the hearing where the State of Michigan tried to terminate her parental rights to two of her surviving children.
Early in the hearing, she lashed out at one of the children’s fathers.
“You were an alcoholic and you were never there,” she yelled.
At one point, she was escorted out of the room and brought back a bit later.
We’ve learned her surviving children, a 17-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy, have been in protective custody since last month when an officer performing an eviction found the bodies of their two siblings in a freezer inside their home. The kids forced to walk by that freezer every day.
The hearing was adjourned because one of the fathers was not immediately present. It has been rescheduled for June 4.
