One of the family members of the quadruple murder victims in Troy, NY, told The Daily Beast that victim Brandi Mells, 22, was friends with Justin C. Mann, 24, who is charged with slaughtering her and her girlfriend’s family.

Mann, of Schenectady, and his accomplice James W. White, 38, were arrested Friday night at Mann’s Schenectady residence and arraigned Saturday morning in Troy City Court. They were both charged with one count of first-degree murder and 4 counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Mells, Myers, 36, and Myers’s children Jeremiah, 11, and Shanice, 5.
