Arrested in Killing of Mother, Kids, Partner in NY

A property manager, who had received a call asking him to check on the tenants, entered the apartment and found two women and two children, all unresponsive.

The family of four were tied up and killed in their home in Troy, New York, with the bodies found on Tuesday.

Shanta Myers, 36, Brandi Mells, 22, and two of Myers' three children-Shanise Myers, 5, and Jeremiah "JJ" Myers, 11-were reportedly discovered bound and slashed to death in their Troy apartment on Tuesday, Dec. 26.

Police say the women were in a relationship.

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

New York police identified the two women and two children who were gruesomely murdered in the basement apartment in Troy, New York, just north of Albany, on December 28, reported The Epoch Times.

James White, 38, and Justin Mann, 24, both from Schenectady, New York pleaded not guilty to the murders.

"I don't have the word."
"We've had homicides here in the past, as all communities do, but children-it really, really has affected this community".

He added: "I think anybody that's had any contact with this case..."

"If you know something that could help us put the monster away who did this to my sister and her lovely babies, you've got to say something".

"Nobody that's been involved in this case is going to ever forget this, I can tell you that", he later told reporters.

Then came the bad news the following day. She says she last spoke with her sister last week. "It feels like somebody has ripped us to shreds".

"She was just a very sweet, sweet girl", friend and former neighbor Equasia Watson told the newspaper.

And Shanise's uncle Khalif Coleman said, smiling, that the 5-year-old had already been her own person.

Tedesco told Fox News that "certain factors were uncovered during the investigation" that may mean the killings were targeted. She would be in your business like: 'What!' and you'd walk away like 'What?

"She was so, so sweet", she said. She was living in Troy with her mother when she met Myers. "She always had one of the biggest dishes". Shante Myers and my handsome little cousins are gone... WHY!

Shakera Symes, Shanta Myers' sister, told Spectrum News the murders have left her entire family traumatized.

Yesterday, Tracy wrote: "WHY?!? WHY?!? WHY?!?"

"Unfortunately, it's frightful, terrible, sad - especially at this time of the year - that there's four deceased folks in there", he said.

John Carmello, Troy school superintendent, said: "Our hearts are broken and our thoughts and deepest condolences are with their family and loved ones during this terribly troubling time".
