An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Jessie Dotson slaughtered six people in a Lester Street home as a result of a lengthy argument with his brother, one of the victims, police said today.
Police believe the killings occurred early Sunday, at 722 Lester, just north of Summer in north Binghamton. Cecil Dewayne Dotson, 30; Marissa Rene Williams, 27; Hollis Seals, 33; and Shindri Roberson, 22, were the adults murdered.
The children who were killed were identified today as Cemario Dotson, 4, and Cecil Dotson, 2, both sons of Cecil Dotson.
Three other children — Cecil Dotson Jr. Cedric Dotson and Ceniyah Dotson, ages unavailable — remain hospitalized at Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center with stab wounds, according to an affidavit.
“The four adults died from apparent gunshot wounds and the minor children sustained multiple injuries as a result of fatal stab wounds,” Police director Larry Godwin said.
Cecil and Jessie got involved in an argument, Godwin said, and Jessie shot Cecil. He then went after everyone in the house to cover up his crime.
“It is our belief that when Jessie left the home, he believed everyone in the home was dead. But as we know, through the grace of God, three of the children survived,” Godwin said.
The affidavit states that one of the surviving children was interviewed and identified Jessie Dotson as the culprit. Dotson later admitted committing the crimes, it states.
This piece of trash murdered children! Children! Because he got mad at his brother??? He should not have been on the streets to begin with, yet within less than 2 months of his release for a previous murder, he once again takes the lives of others. If ever such garbage deserves the death penalty, it would be this one!
