TIONESTA — A suspect is being held in the stabbing deaths of a Leechburg man and a Tionesta woman found at a mobile home in Northwestern Pennsylvania, authorities said.

Coroner Norman Wimer of Forest County said 43-year-old Donald Shay of Leechburg and 42-year-old Marcelle Edwards were found early Saturday.

Shay was found just outside the door and Edwards, who lived at the Tionesta mobile home, was found inside, Wimer said.

Both died of what appeared to be multiple stab wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene, Wimer said.

A 42-year-old man described as a former boyfriend of the woman was taken into custody later Saturday, state police said.

There had been an ongoing dispute between him and the victims, Wimer said.

State police are investigating, and no charges were immediately announced.
