2 men arraigned on murder charges in quadruple homicide in NY

Two suspects have been charged in the quadruple homicide in Troy, New York, a crime the police chief described as the worst he had seen in more than 40 years in law enforcement.

Police said that two women living together as partners, aged 36 and 22, and the older woman's two children, an 11-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl, were killed in a "savage" attack.

The four were killed on December 21, and one of the defendants was acquainted with one of the victims, Troy Police Chief John Tedesco said at a news conference Saturday.

"Being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of a person like this".

Investigators have remained at the gruesome scene since the building's landlord found the bodies Tuesday afternoon.

Brandi Mells, 22; ans Stana Myers, 36, were found dead on Tues., Dec. 26, 2017 in their basement apartment in Troy, New York.

"There's a lot of grieving that's going on, and it will continue to go on, but I think this will be a great opportunity for some closure for these families in the community", Monica Kurzejeski, deputy mayor of Troy, said at the news conference. Police say Myers and Mells were in a relationship.

The manner of death was not released. "The longer you wait, the further away this perpetrator gets and it makes it harder for us to sleep at night", said Symes. Once inside, the manager called 911.

"What happens if that was your family and you were the only one who survived?" asked Smith, as he and other family members appealed through the press for any information about the murders.

Tedesco said he did not believe the crime was random.

Police have not yet identified suspects in the case.

Cops say the quadruple murder in Troy, NY of Shanta Myers, bottom left; her children, Shanise, top left, and Jeremiah, and her lover, Brandi Mells, was targeted. Jeremiah Myers, 11 years old.
