Two arrested for grisly family murder

31 December, 2017, 04:10 | Author: Katrina Soto

Two people are being arraigned Saturday morning in the killing of two women and two children in Troy earlier this week.

He said the motive was unknown, adding that police were confident there would be no further arrests but that "it's certainly open as we continue".

Both Mann and White are from nearby Schenectady, which is where they were arrested.

Police later identified the victims as 36-year-old Shanta Myers; her children, 11-year-old Jeremiah Myers and 5-year-old Shanise Myers; and Brandi Mells, 22, who attended high school in Central New York.

"After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this", Tedesco told reporters Wednesday.

"I don't have to tell you what a good feeling it is to have these two in custody", said Tedesco. Shakera Symes, sister of Shanta Myers, told Spectrum News in Albany that she's now raising Myers' 15-year-old son, who has been staying with her for two months.

Mann appeared to break down as he was led out of court. "I'm not sure if they're coming for me next".

Details of the arrests were not available early Saturday.

The family was killed in their Troy apartment on December 21, but not discovered until five days later, after relatives grew concerned over unreturned phone calls.

Justin C. Mann is seen in an undated photo provided by the Troy Police Department.

Jackie Robinson Sr., a pastor at Oak Grove Baptist Church in Troy, told the Times Union that there are "certainly reasons to be fearful". "I don't have the word", he said the next day.

The Boys & Girls Club also set up a GoFundMe campaign to help Isaiah with living expenses and to pay for counseling.

Symes also said she would raise Myers's son, Isaiah Smith, in the wake of the horrific murders.

Jeremiah, the family said, dreamed of playing for the Boston Celtics. "It will be deeply felt by all his friends at the Club and throughout the community". Mells, Shanta's partner, took in the family after they lost a previous apartment. "The thoughts of our entire community remain with the victims' families during this incredibly hard time".
