Most people are nervous when it comes to finding a babysitter because it often means having to trust a stranger with their children and their home.
When Andrena Kelley left her son Antonio Williams to babysit for her other daughter and two nieces, she probably didn’t think she had to worry. Antonio, 25, was left at home in Maryland with his six-year-old sister Nadira Withers, his nine-year-old cousin Ariana Decree and six-year-old cousin Ajayah Decree.
The Decree sisters were vacationing in Maryland, visiting from their home in Newark , New Jersey.
When Kelley returned home, she found all three children dead and called 911. When firefighters arrived, all three were pronounced dead at the scene.
“This is one of the most difficult scenes that our officers arrived on,” stated police department spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan.
It has now been reported that Williams has been arrested and charged with three first-degree murder counts as well as three second-degree murder counts for the brutal stabbing of his young relatives. Police stated that Williams confessed to the murders.
According to reports, Williams had been left to take care of the children while his mother worked overnight. There was also reportedly another 2-year-old child inside the home who was not harmed.
Investigators are now working on establishing the motive for the murders.
