Man 'confessed to killing his sister and two cousins' while babysitting them

All three girls were under the age of 10.

Two young sisters from New Jersey were among three children under 10 years old who were found fatally stabbed inside a home in Clinton, a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C. Now, a relative is charged with their murders.

Authorities said a man confessed to murdering his 6-year-old sister and two young cousins while they lie in bed, but his motive in doing so is still unclear.

"This is one of the the most hard scenes that our officers arrived on", Donelan said, adding that the neighborhood where the children were found was quiet. Ariana and Ajayah were sisters from Newark, N.J., who were visiting Nadiara for the summer.

Williams has confessed to killing all three victims, according to an official statement from the police department.

First responders pronounced all three of the girls dead on the scene.

When she returned home on Friday morning she found the girls in a basement room with apparent stab wounds, the fourth girl (2) was unharmed in the incident.

In a Friday interview, Donelan hesitated to disclose details about the investigation, saying that she didn't want to jeopardize it. Prince George County Police Chief Hector Velez noted, "I wear a uniform, but I am a father".

Police announced Williams had been taken into custody around 11 p.m. Friday.

Assistant Police Chief Hector Velez said the entire community is mourning the "three handsome young children", The Washington Post reported. 'We have not determined who the person responsible is yet, ' she said.

Chief Velez said: "We all feel this loss".

In a news conference police described the scene inside the home as so "gruesome" that responding officers were given counselling support at the scene.
