Jeremy Williams: Man accused in Kamarie Holland case reportedly killed newborn daughter
North Pole Police Chief Steve Dutra confirmed the reopening of investigation related to the death of one-month-old Naudia Treniece Williams in 2005
Jeremy Williams, who allegedly killed a five-year-old girl after bribing her mother to have sex with the infant in Alabama, may have murdered his one-month-old daughter on an Alaskan airbase back in 2005.
On Thursday, January 6, North Pole Police Chief Steve Dutra confirmed the reopening of investigation related to the death of one-month-old Naudia Treniece Williams in 2005, who was the daughter of Williams, who is being considered the prime charges. The decision to do so, by authorities in Alaska, was made based on the fact that Williams has a lengthy history with child abuse charges. Williams is currently facing separate capital murder charges in relation to the murder of five-year-old Kamarie Holland, who was reported missing by her mother, Kristy Siple on December 13, in Columbus, Georgia. No charges have been filed against Williams in the Holland case. He was originally considered a suspect at the time of Naudia's death. Since investigators were unable to gather sufficient evidence to charge him then, he was never arrested.
How did Kamarie Holland die?
Kamarie Holland was found dead on the same evening that she was reported missing. Her body was discovered in a house that Williams used to reside in Phenix City, Alabama. Williams was arrested that day. Siple was also charged with her daughter’s murder, as well as human trafficking and murder during a kidnapping, rape, and sodomy. Williams will also be charged with the production of child pornography, Taylor said.
Kamarie lived in Phenix City with her father, Corey Holland, who had custody of her. Siple said that she picked up Kamarie to spend the weekend with her. "I'm a mommy. I did not have nothing to do with this," Hoskins told local ABC News. "She was my life. I lived for her daily. She was my only girl. I have 3 boys and her." Williams could face the death penalty if found guilty.
Jeremy Williams criminal history
In 2005, Williams lived with Naudia's mother in the North Pole, where she was stationed while serving an undisclosed role in the Air Force. After the baby's sudden death the Air Force and the North Pole Police Department probed the case. The cause of death was ruled as blunt force trauma. Williams pleaded not guilty to slapping his wife in front of a child, a week prior to Kamarie's death.
Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor referred to the Alaska case after Williams' arrest in Alabama last month. "We have information where he was a suspect in a one-year-old death in Alaska where he was a suspect but never charged because of not able to get enough evidence in that case," Taylor said at a press conference, held on December 14.
Williams had been charged with child abuse in the past, prior to Kamarie's death, but was never convicted. He was also accused of lowering a three-year-old boy into a bowl of boiling water in 2009 and causing the death of another Alabama infant boy. In the former case, His defense argued that the boy had poured the water on himself. He was acquitted in 2012.
