Two arrested for killings of four in Troy

Two men arrested early Saturday in the gruesome murder of a family in Troy, New York, have been identified as 38-year-old James White and 24-year-old Justin Mann, NBC News reports.

Troy Police Chief James Tedesco said that the murder was "the worst we've experienced".

When police announced on Thursday, 28 December that they were seeking tips about the crime, Troy residents were 'shaken'.

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

"Nobody that's been involved in this case is going to ever forget this, I can tell you that", he added. Myers' 15-year-old son was out of town when they were killed.

Myers' sister, Shakera Symes, had implored any potential witnesses to speak with authorities to find "the person who has destroyed us, emotionally, mentally", according to the Times Union.

Preliminary hearings for Mann and White are scheduled for January 4.

A press conference from Troy police is at 11 a.m.

Brandi Mells, 22, Shanta Myers, 36, and Myers' children Shanise, 5, and Jeremiah, 11, were found dead in a basement apartment. "People are very nervous, very concerned that the person who did this crime is still loose", said the Rev. Jackie Robinson, a member of the city's African American Pastoral Alliance. According to the page, money will be used to set up a scholarship and living expenses for the surviving child, Isaiah, 16, and to provide mental health services to the kids, families and the community.

Jeremiah participated in the Troy Boys & Girls Club, which has partnered with the Troy City School District to offer grief counseling.
