Possible guilty plea delayed in Detroit freezer bodies case

June 26, 2015

DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit woman who wants to plead guilty to killing two of her children and placing the bodies in a freezer has been told to return to court Monday to give a judge more time to read a psychiatric report.

Mitchelle Blair has been found mentally competent and seemed unhappy with the delay Friday. It was her first appearance in Wayne County court, a week after waiving a hearing to determine if there was enough evidence against her.

The bodies of Blair’s 13-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son were discovered in a freezer during an eviction in March. Police believe the children died months apart in 2012 and 2013.

The 36-year-old Blair has openly declared her guilt and even said she would accept the death penalty if Michigan had it.
