UPDATE 10:25 a.m. – Detroit mom pleads guilty to killing 2 kids, a few months after bodies were found in freezer .

DETROIT (AP) – A guilty plea is possible from a Detroit woman who admits she killed two of her four children and placed the bodies in a home freezer a few years ago before an eviction crew discovered them.

Mitchelle Blair is returning to Wayne County court Monday. A judge on Friday wanted time to look at reports on her mental health, although experts say she’s competent to face first-degree murder charges.

Defense attorney Wyatt Harris says Blair has consistently said she wants to plead guilty.

The bodies of a 13-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son were discovered in a freezer in March. Police believe they died months apart in 2012 and 2013.
