A man has confessed to murdering his 6-year-old sister and two other girls he was related to in Clinton on Friday, according to police.

Prince George's County Police say they arrested Antonio Williams, 25, of the 6400 block of Brook Jane Drive in Clinton Friday night in connection with the killing of three girls whose bodies were found in a Clinton home earlier that morning.

Officials say Williams' 2-year-old sibling was also in the house during the murders but was not harmed.

Police say Williams had "had sole care and custody" at the house overnight and into Friday morning of his sister Nadira Withers as well as Ariana Decree, 9, and Ajayah Decree, 6, the daughters of his mother's cousin.

Williams admitted to stabbing the girls while they were all in a bed, according to authorities.

Ariana and Ajayah were vising from New Jersey, police say.

Williams' and Withers' mother got home from working an overnight shift Friday morning to the 6400 block of Brooke Jane Drive and found the three girls, authorities say.

Officers say they were called to the scene at just after 7:30 a.m. and said the girls had stab wounds all lying in the same bed in the house's basement and pronounced them dead on the scene.

Police say they have charged Williams with three counts of first and second degree murder and other related charges.

Authorities say they have not yet determined a motive for the murders at this time.
