A Butler County man is being held without bond in the Warren County Jail this morning, charged with two counts of criminal homicide.

State police at Marienville said Scott Allan Black, 38, of Butler, is accused of stabbing to death Marcelle I. Edwards, 42, of Green, and Donald Louis Shay, 43, of Leechburg. The incident occurred early Saturday at Ms. Edwards' mobile home in Green Township, just outside Tionesta in Forest County.

Mr. Black was described by police as a former boyfriend of Ms. Edwards.

State police were summoned to the home by someone reporting that Mr. Black was brandishing a knife. Police said when officers arrived, they found Mr. Shay on the front porch and Ms. Edwards on the kitchen floor.

Mr. Black was found several hours later along nearby German Hill Road and was taken into custody.

A news release from Forest County Coroner Norman J. Wimer noted that both homicide victims had died of "multiple stab wounds." Mr. Wimer also characterized the trouble between Mr. Black and the victims as "ongoing."
