Two Onondaga Nation teenagers were each being held on $50,000 cash bail after being charged with setting fires that damaged one church and left another in ruins on the reservation just south of Syracuse.

Police charged 17-year-old Dylan Antone and 16-year-old Jacob Homer with third-degree arson and burglary. They each pleaded not guilty at their arraignments in DeWitt town court July 6th. Town Justice David Gideon said he considered them a flight risk and set a high bail.
