A man who kidnapped, raped and killed a minor girl in Georgia has been handed four death sentences for the 2021 . On Monday, April 15, Jeremy Williams was sentenced by Russell County Circuit Court Judge David Johnson for the murder, rape, and abuse of five-year-old Kamarie Holland.

The Kamarie Holland case

On December 13, 2021, Holland's mother told police that she woke up at 5:50 am and found that her daughter was missing. The front door of their house in Columbus, Georgia, was open, according to Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor.

Later that night, the little girl's body was discovered at an abandoned house in Phoenix City, Alabama. Williams had resided in this house in the past. He was found guilty of four counts of capital murder, as well as other charges including rape and kidnapping.

At the time of the murder, Williams lived in Columbus. He is accused of having raped Holland and then strangling her to death after offering her mom $2,500 for the child to perform oral sex on him. This was revealed during testimony given at his trial, The Mirror reported.

Holland's mom, Kristy Siple, was later charged with human trafficking. An arrest warrant said that Siple agreed “with another person to pay her for having sexual intercourse and sodomy with her minor child,” according to USA Today. She pleaded guilty to one count of human sex trafficking, and faces up to 20 years in prison.

Video evidence presented to jurors showed officers discovering Holland's body. Video also showed Williams sexually assaulting the trafficked kid, making some jurors cry.

Taylor later told the Ledger-Enquirer that this was one of the most challenging cases of his career. “If there's ever been somebody that's deserving of the death penalty its Jeremy Williams,” he said. “He's another type of evil that we in society just don't need walking around.”

Who is Jeremy Williams?

At present, Williams resides on the death row of Holman State Prison in Atmore. It could be several decades before he is executed.

Williams was presented with quadruple death sentences and a lifetime jail sentence for child abuse material creation and human traffic involvement by Judge Johnson. He was also given two decades for conspiracy in human trafficking and a decade long sentence for body desecration.
