A 25-year-old man has admitted to killing his 6-year-old sister alongside his two youthful cousins while he was was babysitting.
Antonio Williams has been charged with three counts of first and second-degree murder after his mother asked him to watch his sister and cousins while she worked an overnight shift, only to come home to find the three girls, all of whom were under the age of 10, dead in the basement of her home.
Police are still trying to determine what Williams’ motive was for killing his 6-year-old sister, Nadira Withers, and two second cousins, 9-year-old Ariana Decree and 6-year-old Ajayah Decree.
The Prince George’s County Police Department said that the three girls were found in one bed with lacerations to their upper bodies. A fourth child, who is 2 years old, was also at home when the three girls were killed, but that child was unharmed. Williams was the only adult in the Maryland home as the time of the murders, according to the police.
The Decree sisters were visiting from Newark, New Jersey, according to police. Their mother was present when the girls were found as well.
