Police in Rochester have arrested two men in connection with the death of another man last weekend.
Police charged 23-year-old Miles Mitchell and 25-year-old James Hillyard, both of Rochester, with second degree murder and first degree robbery.

"All these conversations that we have about homicides – what we need is people to come forward and that's how we solve these cases," said Chief James Sheppard of the Rochester Police Department.
