Police identify three girls found stabbed to death in Maryland home

Two young sisters from New Jersey were among three children under 10 years old who were found fatally stabbed inside a home in Clinton, a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C. Now, a relative is charged with their murders.

Nadira Withers, six, and her two cousins nine-year-old Ariana DeCree and six-year-old Ajayah DeCree, were found dead early Friday morning in Clinton, Maryland.

Nadira and Williams' mother, Adrena Kelley, found all three children dead inside the home at around 7:30 a.m. The victims were suffering from stab wounds and pronounced dead on the scene.

Antonio Williams, 24, was taken into custody by local police late on Friday night.

"Criminologists are attempting to build up a rationale for this situation", a police representative said.

At a news conference Friday afternoon, Prince George's County Deputy Chief Sammy Patel said investigators were speaking with family members at police headquarters, but would not give any further details as to how they were related to the victims.

On Saturday, Williams, 25, was charged with triple murder and according to charging documents, he confessed. A fourth child, a 2-year-old, was inside, alive and unharmed, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the case.

He's now in prison at the Department of Corrections, being held without bond.

"We have not determined who the person responsible is yet". Prince George's County Deputy Chief Sammy Patel on Friday called the slayings "one of the most hard scenes" that the department's officers have encountered, and said the department will provide counseling services to responding officers.

Chief Velez said: "We all feel this loss". Police spokesperson Jennifer Donelan called it "one of the most hard scenes" Prince George's County officers have investigated.
