Mother in court after kids’ bodies found in freezer

DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit woman charged with child abuse after the bodies of two of her children were found in her home freezer will stay in jail unless she can post a $1 million bond.

Mitchelle Blair was arraigned on several counts this morning via a video feed from a police lockup. She didn’t have a lawyer. A prosecutor requested a high bond amount, saying Blair could face murder charges once investigators determine how the children died.

Blair was arrested Tuesday after court officers serving an eviction notice discovered the bodies. Prosecutors think her daughter Stoni Ann Blair was 13 years old and her son Stephen Gage Berry was 9 when they died about two years ago. Blair’s two other children were placed in protective custody.
