A Georgia woman and her son died after being strangled inside their home.
Gwinnett police said they received a call around 11 p.m. Sunday from a homeowner who said his son Brandon Williams had strangled a woman and her child.
While authorities try to uncover the motives, Brandon Williams of Buford has been charged with one count of felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
NBC 11 reported that the homeowner, who was later identified as the boyfriend to the dead woman, told authorities he was working on a car in the driveway of the home when the incident happened and he said he knew something was wrong because his son was acting strange and was wearing a mask.
Police said the victims, identified as Natalie Nation, 30, and her 2-year-old son Cole, were living with the mother’s boyfriend at his Tybee Drive home.
Nation and her son were transported to Gwinnett Medical Center but died from their injuries. Channel 2 Action News reported that Cole died first and an unknown “offensive object” had been used in his death.
Nation died hours later. Police said a towel had been used to kill her.
According to authorities, the 32-year-old suspect had fled the scene and walked to a nearby gas station after the crime. He was later arrested him without incident.
Williams faces multiple charges including aggravated assault and felony murder and is being held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
So far, police do not have a motive for the crime.
