The judge set Blair's bond at $1 million and she is to have no surviving children, relatives, or neighbors.

Her next court date is set for April 2.

Blair was arrested Tuesday after the gruesome discovery was made that morning. A bailiff was at the house to evict the woman. She was not inside when the bailiff was there.

13-year-old Stoni Ann Blair and 9-year-old Stephen Gage Berry were found dead inside a freezer in the townhome on the east side of Detroit. Stoni would be 15 today, Stephen would be 11.

On Wednesday, a police source told FOX 2's Erika Erickson that the children were trying to sexually assault their younger brother.

According to the same source, the mother told them "I am not evil. It was just an evil act".

The now 8-year-old boy and his 17-year-old sister are both now in protective custody.
