Detroit – A Michigan teenager confessed to authorities that her mother had killed two of her siblings and put their bodies in a freezer. According to a report by the Associated Press (AP), the teen girl said that her mother forced her to help with putting one of the bodies in the freezer.
The bodies of a 9-year-old son, Stephen Berry, and 13-year-old daughter, Stoni Blair, of Mitchelle Blair were discovered in the family’s home by an eviction crew. Blair, 35, has been charged with child abuse. According to prosecutors, she may be charged with murder after autopsies are performed.
Blair’s 17-year-old daughter reportedly told authorities that her mother, “tortured Stephen for approximately two weeks prior to his death by tying a belt around his neck, throwing hot water on him while in the shower and putting a plastic bag over his head.”
The state reportedly investigated abuse allegations against Blair in 2002 and 2005.
Bond for Mitchelle Blair has been set at $1 million.
