A daily crime show has released an interview with Mitchelle Blair, the Detroit mother convicted of killing two of her children and stuffing their bodies in a freezer, in which she says: “I would kill them again.”

In the video released this week by Crime Watch Daily, the show’s anchor, Matt Doran, goes behind bars to speak with Blair.

During the minute-and-a-half clip, Doran asks Blair why she piled the bodies of her dead children, 9-year-old Stephen Berry and, months later, 13-year-old Stoni Blair, in a freezer.

“Well, I only had one deep freezer,” she replied. “You mean to take the decision to pile the bodies on top of each other? Where was she going to go?”

Then Doran asks Blair how she sleeps at night.

“I slept well,” she said. “Of course at first I cried. It was (expletive) up. I had to let go of all of that.”

In response to whether she feels any remorse, Blair responded: “I would kill them again.”

Blair was sentenced in July to life in prison without the possibility of parole after she pleaded guilty to the deaths.

It is believed Stephen died Aug. 20, 2012, and Stoni nine months later on May 25, 2013. Their bodies were found in March when court officers went to evict the family from the Martin Luther King Apartments.
