A property manager in the upstate NY city alerted police after finding the four in a basement apartment. Police say Myers and Mells were in a relationship.

The four were killed on December 21, and one of the defendants was acquainted with one of the victims, Troy Police Chief John Tedesco said at a news conference Saturday.

The sister of a woman who was found slain along with her two young children and her lesbian lover in an upstate NY basement apartment says she's now raising the woman's only remaining son.

It wasn't until Tuesday, five days later, that a property manager found 36-year-old Shanta Myers; her children, 11-year-old Jeremiah Myers and 5-year-old Shanise Myers; and 22-year-old Brandi Mells in a basement apartment along the Hudson River, just north of Albany.

Tedesco and District Attorney Joel Abelove, who appeared at a press conference, declined to answer questions about a possible motive and the method of the killings.
