Mom who killed two kids gets life in prison

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

DETROIT — Declar­ing a “house of hor­rors’’ closed, a judge sen­tenced a Detroit mother to life in prison Fri­day for killing two of her four chil­dren and stor­ing their bod­ies for years in a home freezer. Mitchelle Blair was charged, con­victed and sen­tenced in less than four months, since a shocked evic­tion crew dis­cov­ered the bod­ies in a freezer in March. She pleaded guilty in June to first-de­gree mur­der, in­sist­ing she’d take the death penalty if Michigan had it. “You im­posed the death penalty on your own chil­dren,’’ Judge Dana Hath­away said. “I did,’’ Blair, 36, replied. Blair killed her 13-year-old daugh­ter, Stoni, in 2013 and 9year-old son, Stephen, in 2012.
