A Butler man is accused of fatally stabbing an ex-girlfriend and a Leechburg man in a Forest County mobile home.

State police charged Scott Allan Black, 38, with two counts of homicide in the deaths of Marcelle Edwards, 42, of Green and Donald Shay, 43, of Leechburg. Black is being held without bond at Warren County Jail, police said.

Police said they received a report early Saturday of a man brandishing a knife at Edwards' home, near Tionesta.

When they arrived, troopers found Shay on the front porch and Edwards inside. Both had been stabbed multiple times, Forest County Coroner Norman J. Wimer said. Police later arrested Black along German Hill Road.

Wimer said there had been a dispute between Black and the victims.
