Mitchelle Blair tortured her four children before killing two of them and storing their bodies in a freezer, according to an amended petition authorized by the state of Michigan to end her parental rights for the surviving children.

The woman, whose children were discovered in an apartment freezer two weeks ago, was removed from a pre-trial hearing after an outburst in which she accused one of the children’s fathers of being a deadbeat dad.

According to the Detroit Free Press:

A couple of the kids were burned with scalding hot water. Another was burned with an iron and had rubbing alcohol was poured over her wounds.

Her brother was forced to drink window cleaner and plastic bags were put over his head. When he tore through the plastic to breathe, his mother found tougher bags and his nose and mouth were covered until he lost consciousness. Then she “slapped him awake.”

The grisly details of the abuse Blair’s four children endured continues, ending with the death of 9-year-old Stephen Berry and 13-year-old Stoni Blair.

Blair’s oldest child told authorities her mom put plastic bags over Stephen’s head and when he tore through them to breathe, she used stronger bags and put them “over his nose and mouth, suffocating Stephen until he lost consciousness,” the petition said. It also said Blair put a belt around his neck and choked him.

“Blair lifted Stephen off the ground by holding onto the ends of the belt while the belt was still wrapped around Stephen’s neck,” the document revealed.

Stephen was found unresponsive with vomit next to his body on Aug. 30, 2012. His mother placed him in the freezer with a plastic cover from a bed, according to court documents. His sister, Stoni, died less than a year later. The young girl was punched in the face, burned with water, and suffocated until she lost consciousness at least once, the petition states.

The petition, along with Blair, took aim at the children’s fathers for being absent and owing thousands of dollars in child support.

Alexander Dorsey, the father of Stoni and Blair’s oldest daughter, owes $39,000 in child support. He told Child Protective Services that he was absent because Blair banned him from coming into her home. Steven Berry, the father of Stephen and Blair’s 8-year-old son, has not seen his kids in years. He declined to comment after the hearing.

Blair faces four counts of first-degree child abuse and one count of committing first-degree child abuse in the presence of another child, the Press writes. She also faces two counts each of felony murder, first-degree premeditated murder, and torture for the deaths of Stoni and Stephen.

A joint funeral is planned for the children on Monday.

    WTF!!!! Black men….take care of your kids!!!! I’m so sick of your excuses and lame reason for not taking care of your children…. If these Black fathers had just checked in on their kids or even cared just a little about them… this may not have happened. It’s clear this woman has problems and you just left them with her…. I blame the fathers just as much.

    The one father states that the mother wouldn’t allow him inside the home to see his child, but that didn’t exempt him from financial responsibility.

    This is indeed a very sad story. What those kids must have gone through. The mother hated both fathers more than she loved her children. So much so, that she killed one from each man. Sure, they were deadbeat dads, but why the kids? This should be a lesson learned for some women, make sure you know the character of the man you decide you want to have a child by, because, there is a chance that one day you may be left on your own, and that anger may turn you into a raving lunatic. I hoped they checked her for a mental illness. Bipolar maybe?

    This is their mother, I have no words for her.
