Update On Allegany County Teen, Who Is Facing Murder Charges From 2019

February 7, 2022

Appearances in Allegany County court remain pending for a Clarksville teenager accused of killing his parents and then torching their home on Cortney Hollow Road on November 21, 2019. William “Billy” Larson Jr., who was 17 at the time is now age 19. An Allegany County Grand Jury indicted the teen on two counts of second-degree murder as well as charges of attempted arson, two counts of concealment of a human corpse and three counts of tampering with physical evidence.

The teen was later taken into custody after a 16-hour manhunt. The bodies of 67-year-old William Larson Sr. and 50-year-old Lisa Larson were discovered when Clarksville firefighters responded to a reported fire at the home. Larson remains an inmate at the Allegany County Jail.

There is no bail. Court officials confirmed that “no decision on a future court appearance has been made from the judge.” The reason: Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker who is now handling the case, says the court is waiting for the new attorney who is representing Billy Larson Jr, to finish investigating the double homicide case. The new lawyer came on board, in the summer of 2021.
