NASSAU, Bahamas - Authorities in the Bahamas have charged two U.S. men in the stabbing death of a Pennsylvania man on Bimini.

Assistant Police Commissioner Emrick Seymour says the men are facing charges of manslaughter in the death of Carl Yerger, 45.

Seymour identified the suspects as Tyler Valles, 19, of Key Largo, Fla., and Robert Schwartz, 62, of Gaylordsville, Conn.

The men made an initial appearance before a magistrate Monday. The judge did not issue an immediate ruling on their request for bail.

Yerger was found stabbed to death Friday on the grounds of the Big Game Club and Resort & Marina.  Seymour says the suspects say they fought with Yerger after he tried to get on their boat.

Yerger was a father of two from Ruscombmanor Township, Pa.
