Two Rochester residents have been arrested in connection with a May homicide in which the victim's body was burned after he was shot.
On May 27, Rochester Police were called to the pedestrian bridge in Genesee Valley Park near the tennis courts for reports of a person on fire.
They found the victim, David Jones, 35, had been shot before he was set on fire.
On Wednesday, Rochester Police announced the arrest of Imani Williams and Syjesman Brown, Jr., both of Rochester, in connection to Jones' death.
They're facing second-degree murder charges.
On Monday, police executed a search warrant at 92 Rauber Street, where Williams and Brown Jr. live. Inside, police found a loaded 22 caliber rifle, a quantity of fentanyl and an oven left on with the door open, according to a police report.
As a result, Williams is facing additional charges of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child. She remains in the Monroe County Jail on $20,000 cash or $60,000 bond.
Brown Jr. was released from Genesee County Jail on November 20 but was immediately taken back into custody. He had been jailed for criminal impersonation. He is now facing charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance in addition to the murder charge, based on the recovery of a quantity of heroin found in a vehicle during an October 8 traffic stop in LeRoy.
Williams will be arraigned on Friday in Rochester City Court. Brown Jr. will be arraigned when he is returned to Monroe County Court from the Genesee County Jail.
