UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — A man accused of fatally stabbing his sister and two cousins, all under the age of 10, in a Maryland suburb of Washington has been ruled competent to stand trial.
Media outlets report that a Prince George’s County judge on Thursday found that 25-year-old Antonio Williams was competent to stand trial. He is charged with three counts of first- and second-degree murder in deaths of 6-year-old Nadira Withers, Williams’ sister; 9-year-old Ariana Decree and 6-year-old Ajayah Decree.
Their bodies were found by Nadira’s mother when she came home from work Aug. 18 to her home in Clinton, Maryland.
A psychiatric evaluation had been ordered for Williams after a court hearing during which he repeatedly shouted, “I am not the one you’re looking for!”
