  • Three children found dead in Clinton home

On the morning of Friday (19 August) the children were found dead by Williams' mother, Andrena Kelley.

Antonio Williams, Nadira's brother, has been arrested in connection with the murder at their home in Maryland, USA. Police say they are still trying to determine a motive for the attack.

On Saturday morning, officials announced that Williams is charged with murdering his sister, 6-year-old Nadira Withers, and their two cousins, 9-year-old Ariana Decree and 6-year-old Ajayah Decree.

The 25-year-old has been taken into custody by local cops in the town of Clinton with authorities saying he has confessed to the killings.

Williams is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of second-degree murder.

Kelley called the police who pronounced them dead at the scene.

Police said there was also a two-year-old home at the time who was uninjured.

A babysitter has confessed to stabbing his sister and two young cousins in their Maryland family home.

Investigators said Williams was arrested and later provided a full confession of how he stabbed and killed the three girls as the kids shared a bed. "We have counselling services here at the scene dealing with first arriving officers", Donelan said, adding the neighbourhood is normally quiet. "Whether that child is your child, part of a family or part of a community, we all feel the loss", Assistant Police Chief Hector Velez said.

"We are so very, very devastated for these young, attractive children and their families", Alsobrooks said.

"This has to be, I tell you, one of the worst days we have ever had", Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks said during the hearing.
