2 in custody in connection with Troy murders

Two men were arrested Saturday on murder charges in the deaths of two women and two children who were found dead in their upstate NY apartment.

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

Jeremiah and Shanise were Shanta's children, and Mells was her partner, police said.

They found the bodies inside the home and a medic pronounced all four dead.

"The Troy Police Department is releasing these photos not only for the media but to further appeal to the public for any information regarding this horrific case", Capt. Dan DeWolf of the Troy Police Department said in a statement.

A property manager discovered the bodies Tuesday in the basement apartment after receiving a request to check on the unit, and the identifying details, although not the names, were released Wednesday.

"Only a person of savagery would do something like this".

The city of Troy is located just outside of the state capital, Albany, and is about 160 miles north of New York City.

Police say Myers; her 5-year-old daughter, Shanise; and her 11-year-old son, Jeremiah, were found dead Tuesday.

Police say two suspects have been arrested for the quadruple homicide in Troy earlier this week.

"If you know something that could help us put the monster away who did this to my sister and her handsome babies, you've got to say something". "I don't know of a word for it".

On Saturday, Tedesco said the police do not have a motive for the killings but are confident that there will not be any additional arrests, even though the investigation continues.

"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. No suspect has been identified publicly.

Symes says Myers' older son has been living with her for about two months.

Shanta Myers has been remembered as a mother who loved to cook.

Brandi Mells, 22, was Shanta Myers' girlfriend.
