Police identify 3 children found dead in Maryland home

A judge has ordered a psychiatric evaluation of a man accused of fatally stabbing his sister and two cousins, all under the age of 10.

Antonio Williams, from Maryland in the United States, was left to look after the three girls, all aged under 10, while his mother was at work on Thursday.

A family member arrived at the home located in the 6400 block of Brooke Jane Dr. and found the three girls dead, authorities said.

The children, who were aged from five to nine, were found with "trauma to the body", Prince George's County police said, but did not elaborate due to the ongoing investigation.

Investigators were still working to determine a motive, the release said.

On the morning of Friday (19 August) the children were found dead by Williams' mother, Andrena Kelley.

On Friday morning, Prince George's County Police Department spokesperson Jennifer Donelan said the scene inside the home was gruesome.

A fourth child, a 2-year-old, was also in the home at the time of the killings but was unharmed.

Williams has been charged with three counts of first degree murder and three counts of second degree murder.

Williams is in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no-bond status. "This is one of the most hard scenes that officers arrived on".

"Incidents like these are not easy to handle", Assistant Prince George's County Police Chief Hector Velez told the Washington Post.

"We have families that we need to be concerned about, grieving families", Donelan added. "Those that responded here today are parents, aunts, uncles of young children that they love very much".
