Two men have been arrested in the gruesome quadruple murder in upstate NY that left four people dead - two of them children.

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.

Both Mann and White have been charged with murder in the deaths of two women and two children who were found dead in their Troy apartment. Both men have criminal records and Mann was on parole.

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

They have been remanded to Rensselaer County Jail without bail.

Police have not released many details about the crime, but Tedesco said that there were indications that the family was targeted. Police said Myers and Mells were in a relationship. The body of one of the women was on a mattress on the floor, and the fourth victim was nearby, also face down but covered with a sheet.

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

Police Chief John Tedesco said he'd never seen such "savagery" in 42 years as a cop.

Adding, "I'm scared to go to the corner store". Mann is now on parole.

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

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

It has been reported that Mann broke brown as he was being led out of court.
