Rochester Police have charged two teenagers with the death of a man found dead in a home on the city's northwest side last month.

Fifteen-year-old Isaiah Rollins and 17-year-old Martin Jones have been charged with second-degree murder.

Police say the pair beat 52-year-old Curt Vallentin to death inside a home on Orlando Street, off Cameron Street. Vallentin was found inside that vacant home on September 30. 

Kahdijah Terry, Rollins's sister, said, "I told my little brother man, he don't deserve this life. My brother's not built for this life. He goes to school every day, he's a good student, all that."

Investigators say both young men confessed to the crime on tape.
