Prince George’s County Police said three juveniles were discovered in Clinton home.
Spokeswoman for the agency Jennifer Donelan said a family member discovered the victims, all of which had trauma to their bodies, inside the home. Detectives have not determined a motive and no suspects have been arrested in the case.
Donelan called the crime “one of the most difficult scenes” the responding officers had ever encountered. Counseling will be provided to those officers.
Update: Police have identified the suspect involved in the triple homicide at 6400 block of Brook Jane Drive in Clinton as 25-year-old Antonio Shareek Williams.
Williams is the brother of 6-year-old Nadiara Janae Withers, who was one of the victims and the cousin of the other two victims, who were identified as 6-year-old Ajayah Royale DeCree and 9-year-old Ariana Elizabeth DeCree, both of Newark, New Jersey.
A 2-year-old girl was also in the house at the time of the killings, but she was unharmed. She is the sister of Nadiara Withers and the suspect, police said. Williams was watching the girls, while the mother, Andreana Kelley, was at work.
Police charged Williams with three counts of first- and second-degree murder in the death of the three victims.
