Man arrested after 3 children found dead in Maryland home

Three girls under the age of 10 were found dead Friday morning in a home in Clinton, Maryland, police said.

Antonio Williams, 24, of Clinton, has been arrested on three counts of first-degree murder and other related charges in the slaying of the girls. Williams has been charged with three counts of murder, authorities said.

Nadira and Williams' mother, Adrena Kelley, found all three children dead inside the home at around 7:30 a.m.

A family is reeling in grief and shock after a man has murdered three small girls in Clinton, Maryland.

They said Saturday they didn't know why Williams killed the children.

The scene was heartbreaking to police; counseling services are being offered to those who responded to the home. They were articulated dead by flame division work force. They are the daughters of the suspect's mother's cousin, police said.

"This is one of the most hard scenes that our officers arrived on", police department spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said. We have our evidence techs who are inside the home now.

"I wear a uniform, but I am a father", Velez said.

Patel said police are interviewing family members. "This is one of the most hard scenes that officers arrived on".

That work is being done working together with the workplace of State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks, who accepted the open door to talk for the benefit of province inhabitants, saying, "We are completely shattered and we are so totally crushed".

The children's names, ages and relation to one another has not yet been explained. Police said at a news conference later in the afternoon on Friday that they are determined to make an arrest, but they do not have any suspects.
