    Two men arrested in Rhode Island have been charged in the fatal shooting of a Bronx teenager who died weeks before his high school graduation.

    Raul Pacheco and Eric Landron were arrested Saturday on open bench warrants; one violated parole and the other had an open warrant for a marijuana case, prosecutors said. 

    They waived extradition and were transported to the Bronx, where they were charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon in the April 22 death of 17-year-old Alphonza Bryant III, the Bronx district attorney's office said.

    Information on an attorneys for the men were not immediately available.
