— MAHANOY CITY — A northeastern Pennsylvania man has been found fatally stabbed at his home, and police say they expect to charge a woman in his death.

Mahanoy City police said that 52-year-old Lawrence Quinn’s killing wasn’t a random act and they expected to charge someone soon.

He was found about 6 a.m. when a woman went to his neighbor’s home to tell them Quinn had been stabbed.

Neighbors say Quinn lived with his long-time girlfriend, but it was not immediately clear if she or another woman alerted the neighbors to the stabbing.

Police say residents have nothing to fear because “this is not a random act.”
