  • Authorities say they’ve made arrests in connection with the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in a Mohawk Valley field near where two teenage boys were last seen before disappearing earlier this month.
    State police Friday afternoon announced the arrests on second-degree murder charges of 16-year-old Anthony Brasmiester of Amsterdam and an unidentified 15-year-old.
    They are charged the deaths of 16-year-old Paul Damphier and 13-year-old Jonathan DeJesus, whose bodies were discovered by police Thursday in the Town of Florida, about 30 miles northwest of Albany.
    The pair had been missing more than a week.
    State police say they recovered a rifle they believed to be the murder weapon. Police said they did not want to discuss motive.
    Brasmiester was sent to jail without bail and the 15-year-old was sent to a secure facility.
