Mother Of Siblings Found In Freezer Charged With Child Abuse

DETROIT (AP) – Prosecutors have charged a Detroit woman with child abuse after the bodies of two of her children were found in a deep freezer in the family’s home.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Wednesday that 35-year-old Mitchelle Blair will be arraigned Thursday.

Blair could be charged with more serious crimes after autopsies are performed on her daughter Stoni Ann Blair and son Stephen Gage Berry. The medical examiner was waiting until the bodies thawed to perform the autopsies and determine how they died.

Prosecutors believe that when they died, the girl was 13 years old and her brother was 9.

Court officers discovered the bodies Tuesday while serving an eviction notice. Two of Blair’s other children had been living at the home and were placed in protective custody.
