Authorities say three girls under age 10 were found dead in a home in Clinton, Maryland, Friday morning.
Police arrested 25-year-old Antonio Williams of the 6400 block of Brooke Jane Drive for the murder of his sister, six-year-old Nadira Withers of Brooke Jane Drive, as well as nine-year-old Ariana Decree and six-year-old Ajayah Decree, both of New Jersey.
The girls are the daughters of the suspect’s mother’s cousin, police say.
Williams was watching the girls by himself at the home overnight into Friday. He confessed to the killings, according to police.
An adult family member discovered the children, Prince George’s County police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said. Police were called at about 7:35 a.m.
She added that the three children all had trauma to their bodies.
“This is one of the most difficult scenes that our officers arrived on,” the spokeswoman said.
