CARROLL, N.Y. (AP) - Four men have been arrested in connection with a home invasion that left a Chautauqua County couple dead.
Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace says that 66-year-old Gordon Skinner and 59-year-old Joyce Skinner were found dead Wednesday morning in their burning home in the rural town of Carroll.
He says four suspects were arrested Thursday in Elmira, where at least three of them lived, and are being held for arraignment on unspecified charges. They're identified as 34-year-old Davide Coggins, 18-year-old Ricky Knickerbocker, 18-year-old Steven Todd and 21-year-old Joshua McCormick.
Gerace didn't say how the Skinners were killed. But he described the attack as "one of the most disturbing and troubling home invasions I have seen."
