The man accused of killing and sexually assaulting five-year-old Kamarie Holland is facing additional charges involving another girl under six.
Jeremy Tremaine Williams is currently in jail without bond awaiting trial for the murder and post-death sexual assault of Holland.
According to WSFA, Williams has new charges that include rape, sodomy and sexual abuse of a child in an incident involving another child under the age of six.
On Dec. 13, 2021, Kristy Siple, initially reported by the sheriff's office as Christie Hoskins, called to report her daughter, Kamarie Holland, missing. According to the original report from the Russell County Sherriff’s Office, Siple awoke early in the morning to find that her daughter was missing from home.
Later that day, police found Holland’s body in an abandoned house in Phenix City. Police said that she likely died of asphyxiation, and there was evidence of sexual abuse.
Shortly after, Williams was arrested and charged. Williams had previously lived in the house where Holland was found.
On December 27, things took a different turn when an Alabama District Judge issued four warrants for the arrest of Siple. Three of the charges relate to the murder of Holland, and the fourth is a charge for human trafficking. The three murder charges are for murder in the course of kidnapping, murder in the course of rape and murder in the course of sodomy. All of the murder charges allege that she acted in tandem with Williams in the crimes.
The fourth charge alleges that Siple accepted money from an undisclosed party desiring to engage in sex acts with Holland.
Williams is charged with capital murder in the course of a kidnapping, capital murder in the course of rape, capital murder in the course of sodomy, corpse abuse and producing child pornography.
Court documents claim Williams “recorded himself raping and sodomizing” Kamarie after her demise.
Williams has a history of child abuse accusations. In 2009, Williams was charged with burning a three-year-old child, of whom he was the guardian, with hot water so severely as to cause him serious injury. Williams was found not guilty of the charge. He was also a suspect in the death of a one-year-old in Alaska but was never charged.
Siple had previously told WTVM that she was not involved in the murder. Two days after Holland was found, Siple appeared on TV donating the toys of her now-deceased daughter.
“I’m coping, I’m making it,” Siple said.
“I am a mommy, and I didn’t have nothing to do with this," she added. "She was my life. I lived for her daily.”
