FAIRVIEW, Pa. — A man has been charged with killing his wife and her adult daughter in their northwestern Pennsylvania home.

Fifty-eight-year-old Regis Brown is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated assault and other counts in the Fairview Township slayings.

State police in Erie County say they believe 53-year-old Michele Brown and 35-year-old Tammy Greenawalt were killed Friday but their bodies weren’t found until Monday afternoon.

Police allege that Brown tied up Greenawalt in a rocking chair in his bedroom and stabbed her, then bludgeoned his wife in the garage when she arrived home later.

Police said a 14-year-old girl was tied up for a time but didn’t appear to have sustained any serious injuries.

Court documents don’t list an attorney representing Brown and a listed number for him couldn’t be found Tuesday.
