Ohio teen Matthew Pierson confesses to killing 5-year-old niece with a scythe
An Ohio teenager is in jail on $500,000 bond after he confessed to brutally killing his 5-year-old niece with a scythe, WXIX-TV reported.
Jada Beth Williams’ body was found lying in a pool of blood in the garage of a home in Jackson Township.
Tina Williams, the little girl’s grandmother, made the gruesome discovery and called 911, telling the dispatcher that Jada “was here with the guy I live with and my grandson, and she is dead.”
In a recording of the call, obtained by the Fayette Advocate, Williams says the girl is “covered in blood.”

Ward said other people could be charged in connection with her murder, and the charges against Pierson could be upgraded.
