Downstate Mother Admits To Murdering Children, Placing Bodies In Freezer

We have an update tonight on the downstate woman accused of killing her two children and putting their bodies in a freezer.

Mitchelle Blair says she committed the crime, and wants to plead guilty to murder.

Blair added she would accept the death penalty if the state had one.

She’s charged with murder, torture and child abuse after police found her daughter and son in a freezer during an eviction in March.

Her case heads off to circuit court next week.
