FLEETWOOD, Pa. (AP) - Police have released the names of two American men arrested in connection with the stabbing death of an eastern Pennsylvania businessman in the Bahamas.

WFMZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1g7i0CP) said 19-year-old Tyler Michael Vales of Key Largo, Fla., and 52-year-old Robert Francis Schwarz of Gaylordsville, Conn., were arraigned Tuesday on manslaughter charges in the Bahamian capital of Nassau.

The men are accused of killing 45-year-old Carl Yerger of Ruscombmanor Township, Berks County, at the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina on the island of Bimini. It couldn’t immediately be determined if they had attorneys.

Yerger was in the Bahamas on a business trip.

Royal Bahamas Police Assistant Commissioner Emrick Seymour said the suspects were crew members on a boat docked at the resort. Investigators haven’t disclosed a motive for the killing.
