ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A year after four people were found slain inside a burning Rochester apartment, no one has been charged with the crime.

Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the killings of two men and two women whose bodies were found inside a Leighton Avenue apartment. Police say the apartment in the two-family home was set on fire in attempt to cover up the slayings.

The victims were later identified as 28-year-old Michael Royal, 29-year-old Jennifer Leasure, 45-year-old Michael Adams and 22-year-old Lachelle Powell. All were from Rochester.

Monetary awards for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case have been offered but so far no one has been charged.

A vigil in memory of the victims is scheduled to start at 6p.m. Tuesday.
