PAMELIA, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say they've charged two more people in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man in northern New York two months ago.
New York State Police say 20-year-old Taylor Beckstead, formerly of Watertown, and 22-year-old Devin Hunter Davis, of Colonial Beach, Virginia, were arrested Monday in Westmoreland County, Virginia.
Both have been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the slaying of Tyler Johnson on May 18 in a home in the Jefferson County town of Pamelia (puh-MEEL'-yuh), 70 miles (113 kilometers) north of Syracuse.
Beckstead and Davis are being held in a Virginia jail pending extradition. It couldn't be learned from authorities if they have lawyers yet.
Two other northern New York men, ages 25 and 26, have also been charged with murder in the case.
Police haven't released a motive for the shooting.
