Matthew Kaleb Pierson, an 18-year-old teen from Ohio, is in jail on a $500,000 bond after confessing to savagely murdering his five-year-old niece with a scythe.
A scythe is an agricultural implement consisting of a long, curving blade fastened at an angle to a handle, for cutting grass, grain, etc., by hand. However, it is also historically associated with The Grim Reaper aka Death.
Jada Beth Williams’ body was discovered lying in a pool of blood in a garage at home.
The grandmother discovered the boy and proceeded to call 911.
Here was what she said to the emergency dispatcher:
"My granddaughter is dead. I just come home. She was here with the guy I live with and my grandson and she is dead. She's covered in blood."
Pierson confessed to the murder a day later. He confessed to beating Jada Williams with the scythe and leaving her body in the garage.
He will be charged with the murder of Jada Williams who police say died from “multiple blunt force trauma to the head, neck and face.”
