The attorney for a man accused in the slayings of a Gwinnett County mother and her 2-year-old son implicated the suspect’s father, Channel 2 Action News reported Tuesday.
Attorney Robert Greenwald said at a probable cause hearing that Austin Williams, the father of suspect Brandon Williams, found the bodies in the upstairs bedroom of a house near Buford on April 16, the news station reported.
Greenwald also said Austin Williams was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Natalie Nation, one of the victims, Channel 2 reported.
“There is no evidence that my client laid a hand upon either of these two individuals,” Greenwald said.

Natalie Nation was renting a room at the house, the homeowner told authorities.
Williams has refused to acknowledge the deaths, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. He said in a previous hearing that the victims weren't murdered and are still at the house where police said they found the bodies.
