UTICA — Prosecutors have identified the Utica man suspected of killing two women, including his grandmother.

Naythen Aubain, 29, is currently in the hospital after crashing his vehicle into a telephone pole Sunday night on Bleecker Street in Utica.

District Attorney Scott McNamara confirmed Aubain's identity Tuesday, saying his office plans to charge the 29-year-old with two counts of first degree murder when he is released from the hospital.

An investigation initiated Sunday when police responded to Bleecker Street in Utica for the crash. Investigators said Aubain made comments on the scene that lead police to believe he had harmed someone in Utica.

Investigators later responded to 1147 Tilden Ave. in Utica after learning Aubain lived in a second-floor apartment with his 90-year-old grandmother Katerine Aubain.

Upon entering the home, police found the mutilated body of 87-year-old Jane Wentka, said Sgt. Michael Curley of the Utica Police Department. Wentka lived in the ground floor apartment. Additional forensic evidence that could be traced to Wentka were found along Albany Street, Curley said.

Katerine Aubain was then reported missing, but authorities announced Monday night they believe they found her remains. Utica Police Department is waiting for the medical examiner to identify the remains.

“Confirmative identification of both these remains and those located within the residence at 1147 Tilden Ave. will be made by the Medical Examiner’s Office,” the Utica Police Department said in a news release Monday evening. “Once that is complete, we will release all identifying information regarding the victims of this horrendous crime.”

Curley said Aubain's remains were found at an electric substation park on Oneida Street in Clayville.

The investigation is ongoing.
