ONEIDA, N.Y. — Authorities say they’ve charged two teenagers with fatally stabbing a 35-year-old central New York man during a fight last weekend.

Police in the Madison County city of Oneida say Tuesday they’ve charged 17-year-old Isaac Cantu and 16-year-old Jordan Warner, both of Oneida, with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Authorities say the teens were involved in a Sunday night brawl during which 35-year-old Francis Borasky was killed near his home in Oneida, 30 miles east of Syracuse. Police say a knife was found near the scene of the fight.

Police haven’t said what touched off the fight or how many people were involved.

Both teens are being held at the county jail.

It couldn’t immediately be learned from prosecutors if they have attorneys to comment on the charges.
