(AP) – Two arrests have been made in connection with the death of Jeanine Cammarata, a Staten Island teacher and mother of three. 

Police say Michael Cammarata and Ayisha Egea, both of Queens, face murder and other charges in Jeanine’s death. 

Authorities had been working to confirm the identity of charred remains found at a Staten Island storage facility early Thursday. 

On Friday, the New York Police Department said the missing woman had been “located and pronounced deceased.” 

The Public School 29 teacher was last seen on Saturday night. She was reported missing after she failed to show up for work. She also missed a court date in her divorce case. 

Information on the defendants’ lawyers was not available on Friday.
