In a Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2017 file photo, Troy police investigate multiple deaths at 158 Second Ave., in Troy, N.Y.

Police believe the men killed 36-year-old Shanta Myers, her partner, 22-year-old Brandi Mells, and Myers' two children, 11-year-old Jeremiah Myers and 5-year-old Shanise Myers.

According to The Washington Post, the murder took place on December 21.

The family was found dead inside the basement apartment where they lived.

They have been remanded to Rensselaer County Jail without bail.

The timesunion reported one of the two men, having known one of the deceased.

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. "It's a great relief". Police arrived to find the four bound with their throats slit.

Police recovered a knife with blood on both the handle and the blade located on a ledge near a closet close to the victims. Mells and Myers met about three years ago, getting engaged earlier this year. He did say White and Mann, both have criminal records. Mann is now on parole.

As of Saturday afternoon, a GoFundMe campaign had raised more than $34,400 for the Myers family.

The killings had left Myers' relatives and 15-year-old son broken and desperate for answers. At the time of the murders, the teen had been out of town. "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".

Adding, "I'm scared to go to the corner store". It's not yet clear what led police to Mann and White.
