Antonio Williams, from Maryland in the United States, was left to look after the three girls, all aged under 10.

Prince George's County Police homicide unit detectives have arrested and charged Antonio Williams in the death of three young girls. Police are still trying to determine his motive.

Police said they found a 2-year-old girl, who was unharmed, in the home when they arrived.

The girls were visiting relatives in Clinton, where they, along with their cousin Nadira Withers, 6, were left in the overnight care of Withers' brother, Antonio Williams, the police department said in a news release.

On Saturday, Williams, 25, was charged with triple murder and according to charging documents, he confessed.

The cousins were from Newark, New Jersey.

When the mother, Andrena Kelley, returned home from work early Friday morning, she discovered the girls in their beds, suffering from what appeared to be stab wounds.

Saudi Arabia led coalition to blame for half of Yemen children deaths
The number of cholera cases in the war-torn country has now surpassed half a million, the World Health Organization said Monday. The United Nations has worked to avert attacks on Hodeidah port, where around 80 percent of Yemen's food imports arrive.

They were all pronounced dead at the scene.

Prince George's County Deputy Chief Sammy Patel called the slayings in a house in Clinton "one of the most hard scenes" that the department's officers have encountered.

Police announced Williams had been taken into custody around 11 p.m. Friday. He added that they believed they'd made contact with a parent, but couldn't say any more than that. Police said they had no word about a lawyer for him.

"We have not determined who the person responsible is yet".

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

Police were called just after 7:30 a.m. Friday morning to a scene that police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan referred to as "one of the most hard scenes that our officers arrived on".
