Life sentence, no parole for Detroit mom who killed 2 kids

Posted:

DETROIT (AP) -- A Detroit woman who killed two of her four children and pledged she would do it again has been sentenced to life in prison without a chance for parole.


   Mitchelle Blair appeared in court Friday. She's been charged, convicted and sentenced in less than four months, since an eviction crew discovered the children's bodies in a home freezer. They had been stored there for more than a year.


   Blair killed her 13-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son. She claims they had sexually abused a sibling, though she didn't witness the alleged assaults and never reported anything to police.


   The 36-year-old Blair insisted on pleading guilty in June and said she would have accepted the death penalty if Michigan had it.
