A bond hearing for a Maryland man who has admitted to stabbing his six-year-old sister and the girl’s two cousins to death has descended into chaos after the suspect was heard making incoherent statements and his mother came to his defense.
Antonio Williams, 25, was arrested on Friday in the stabbing deaths of his sister Nadira and two other relatives, nine-year-old Ariana DeCree and six-year-old Ajayah DeCree.
All three girls were found dead in Clinton, Maryland, while Antonio was babysitting them. The grisly discovery was made by Nadira and Antonio’s mother, Andrena Kelley, when she returned home from working a night shift as a nurse early Friday morning.
Antonio, who according to police made a full confession to the stabbings, was brought into the Prince George’s County Courthouse Monday morning for a bond hearing, but a judge was forced to cut the proceedings short after a pandemonium erupted in the courtroom.
Williams, who celebrated his 25th birthday behind bars on Saturday, seemed disoriented as he was led into the stuffy, crowded courtroom by deputies. He was heard yelling, ‘I’m not the one you’re looking for’ and ‘he’s here.’
The venue was packed with furious family members of the three deceased girls, among them Nadira and Antonio’s sobbing mother, who stood up and repeatedly told her son, ‘Mommy loves you, reported Fox 5 DC.’

Nadira Janae Withers and sisters, Ariana Elizabeth Decree and Ajayah Royale Decree, were found stabbed to death in the same bed.

Meanwhile, three deputies struggled to hold Antonio down at the defense table as he continued raving, heaving and crying, while prosecutors and lawyers tried in vain to calm him down.
The tumultuous bond review came to an abrupt end when Judge Patrice Lewis ordered the suspect to undergo a mental competency evaluation, to be completed by next Tuesday.
As Kelley and her family members were led out of the courtroom, she exclaimed, referring to her son, ‘He needs me!’
