Tragic….Day Before His Birthday, Maryland Man Arrested For Killing His Little Sister & Two Young Cousins

Antonio Williams, 25, has been arrested in connection with the gruesome murders of three young girls under the age of 10 who were found dead inside a Maryland home.

Antonio Williams, 25, was arrested Friday and charged with three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Nadiara Janae Withers, 6, as well as his cousins Ariana Elizabeth Decree, 9, and Ajayah Royale Decree, 6, NBC Washington reported. Police are puzzled why Williams would choose to murder 3 girls all under the age of 10 before his birthday.

Here’s What Happened:

Antonio Williams was supposed to be babysitting his litter sister, Nadiara Janae Withers, along with their two cousins: Ariana Elizabeth Decree and Ajayah Royale Decree. His mother, Andrena Kelley, works nights as a nurse and she needed someone to look after the children. Conveniently, Williams allegedly lived with his mother on Brooke Jane Drive in Clinton, Maryland.

According to NY Daily News, Ariana Elizabeth Decree and Ajayah Royale Decree were from Newark, New Jersey. They were staying with Kelley for the summer as she is a cousin to their mother. Believing the children were in good hands, she went off to work. Kelley had no idea that would be the last time she would see the children alive.

Nadiara Janae Withers and sisters, Ariana Elizabeth Decree and Ajayah Royale Decree, were found stabbed to death in the same bed.

When Kelley arrived home from work, she discovered her daughter, Nadiara Janae Withers, along with her cousins Ariana Elizabeth Decree and Ajayah Royale Decree dead. She immediately phoned the police. The victims were suffering from stab wounds and all three were found in one bed in the basement. Tragically, police officers believe Williams allegedly murdered all 3 victims. Williams did leave his other two-year-old sister unharmed, though she was in the house with him, The Washington Post reported. Investigators shared that Williams was the only adult in the home at the time of the girls’ deaths.

First responders pronounced all three of the girls dead on the scene. Upon arriving to the scene, police spokesperson Jennifer Donelan called it “one of the most difficult scenes” Prince George’s County officers have investigated.

We are now in the midst of a major investigation into what happened to these children and who killed them, police department spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said. This is one of the the most difficult scenes that our officers arrived on, Donelan said, adding that the neighborhood where the children were found was quiet.

Why?

Antonio Williams remained at the home after the slayings and was taken to the police station, where authorities said he offered a full confession following an extensive interview. Williams is in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no-bond status. Police officers are now working hard to determine a motive as we all want to know why.
