Double Homicide in Forest County

A Butler County man is jailed without bail after allegedly stabbing two people to death Saturday morning in Tionesta.

38-year-old Scott Allan Black is charged with two counts each of criminal homicide and aggravated assault.

Police went to the home of 42-year-old Marcelle Edwards for a report of a man brandishing a knife and, when they got there, found the body of 43-year-old Donald Shay of Leechburg on the front porch. Edwards’ body was found on the kitchen floor.

Forest County Coroner Norman Wimer says Edwards and Shay died of multiple stab wounds.

He says Black is Edwards’ ex-boyfriend.
