Police have arrested two men in connection with the murder of a lesbian couple and two children in Troy, N.Y.
It wasn't until Tuesday, five days later, that the property manager found 36-year-old Shanta Myers; her children, 11-year old Jeremiah Myers and 5 year-old Shanise Myers; and 22-year-old Brandi Mellsin a basement apartment along the Hudson River.
Both men were arraigned for one count of first degree murder and four counts of second degree murder. James White has been charged with four counts of second-degree murder.
However, cops believe the murders occurred on December 21 about 9 p.m.
Myers' son, Isaiah Smith, was away when he heard what happened to his mother, brother and sister - and said he feared for his own life. Both entered a not guilty plea during their arraignment Saturday morning in Troy City Court. The body of one of the women was on a mattress on the floor, and the fourth victim was nearby, also face down but covered with a sheet.
At the scene, police recovered a knife with blood on both the handle and the blade located on a ledge near a closet close to the victims. Mann had been on parole.
Troy police Chief John Tedesco called the killings "an act of savagery".
"After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this", Tedesco told reporters Wednesday.
Adding, "I'm scared to go to the corner store". "Something that they are trying to get their heads around.I can't say enough about the level of commitment and effort that law enforcement, some of who are here today have put into this case to get us where we are today".
A preliminary hearing for Mann and White is scheduled for January 4. The Times-Union says Mann appeared to break down as he was led out of court.
