(HOLLAND) The son of 2 people found dead in their home near Holland has admitted his actions. 

The Bell County Sheriff`s Office said 50-year-old James Keith Williams waived his constitutional and statutory rights before telling investigators he used a firearm to shoot his parents, 80-year-old Floyd Williams and 78-year-old Priscilla Williams. James Williams remains in Bell County Jail, charged with Capital Murder. Deputies had originally responded September 15th to a home in the 8500 block of Campbell Hill Road near Holland in reference to a welfare check. Deputies looked through the windows and saw an unresponsive person the floor. After making forced entry into the home, deputies found the 2 elder Williams dead of multiple gunshot wounds. Investigators say a daily medication log for the couple showed a final entry August 21st, meaning the pair were likely dead for nearly a month before they were discovered. A vehicle belonging to the couple was found in the possession of their son. James Williamson also has a lengthy criminal history with convictions from 1990 to 2020 for various offenses such as forgery, theft, vehicular theft, and assault of family members.
