White, 38, and Justin C. Mann, 24, are each charged with one count of first-degree murder and four counts of second-degree murder.

Court papers revealed the murders taking place at about 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 21. Police said autopsies would be conducted Wednesday, but results have not been released.

One of the defendants knew one of the victims but Tedesco declined to say who. Mann had been on parole.

There is no motive yet, according to Tedesco.

A preliminary hearing for Mann and White is scheduled for January 4.

Tedesco and Rensselaer County DA Joel Abelove remained tight lip on what may have motivated the brutal murders, with some wondering if the killings came as a result of the two men harboring contempt for the same same sex of the mother with her younger girlfriend.

A property manager discovered the bodies of Shanta Myers, 36, her 5-year-old daughter Shanise, her 11-year-old son Jeremiah, and her partner, Brandi Mells, 22, in their basement apartment while conducting a wellness check the day after Christmas.

Police did not say how they caught the suspects but said they both were arrested without incident.

Numerous law enforcement sources not involved in the investigation have told news outlets that all four of the victims were bound, with their throats cut.

"After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this", Tedesco told reporters Wednesday. He thanked numerous agencies involved and the public for providing tips. Having been in law enforcement for almost 50 years, Tedesco says the crime scene was unlike any he's witnessed.

"It took weight off my shoulders and weight off my chest because we finally found somebody that found them and they can get off the street where we can have our kids to feel safer", said Khalif Coleman.

Told the teen via the Times Union, 'I'm not sure if they're coming for me next.' .
