He is currently being held without bond at the Macomb County Jail in Georgia.

Police believe Williamson allegedly stabbed Matthews, 57, and assaulted his girlfriend Nicole Guertin, 35, along with the couple’s five-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son.

It’s unknown what Williamson’s relationship was with Matthews, but Matthew’s older brother and neighbor, Joe Nicolai, said he saw Williamson a few times near their Michigan home.

Police also said there were signs of burglary and intrusion, leading them to believe Williamson was not an unwelcome guest.

Authorities were called to the Hidden Harbor Condominiums around noon on Friday after a woman fled her home with her young daughter.

The son was found bound in a closet with blunt force trauma and Matthews was found dead.

The son underwent brain and ear surgery and remains sedated in the pediatric intensive care unit.

“I’m working to give these kids everything they need,” said Guertin’s sister, Ashley Quigley, who is raising the couple’s daughter with her husband.

Williamson attempted suicide by overdosing on heroin, but first responders were able to revive him before he was taken into custody.

Matthews, a radio announcer for WWJ-AM, was remembered by his peers as a diligent reporter.

“He was a great guy, very calm, did his job and was nice to everyone,” reporter Charlie Langton said on Friday. “What a tragedy.”

“He often spoke to co-workers about his children and their adventures at school,” host Jake Paige said on the air.

“He was a consummate professional dedicated to WWJ and the broadcast industry. He loved breaking the news to his listeners every night.”
