A Butler man was charged Saturday with two counts of homicide after two people were found stabbed to death at a remote cabin about 15 miles from Tionesta.

After his arraignment, 38 year-old Scott Black was placed without bond in the Warren County Jail.  Black is charged in the death of a 42 year-old Tionesta woman, Marcelle Edwards, and 42 year-old Donald Shay, from Leechburg, in Edwards’ home.  Edwards’ body was found inside her home, and Shay’s body was discovered on Edwards’ porch shortly before 2:00 AM on Saturday morning.

The cabin home is located on Holly Acres Road in Greene Township.  Black was apprehended away from the scene on German Hill Road shortly after the beginning of the investigation into the murder case.
