The man arrested in connection with a homicide in Miles City earlier this month is one of the suspects in a stabbing and a homicide early this week in Missoula.

Missoula County Attorney Kirsten Pabst says 37-year-old Scott Austin Price of Billings and 32-year-old Sarah Rae McKnight of Trout Creek are persons of interest in Monday's attacks. They were arrested Tuesday in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, as fugitives from justice.

Police in Miles City have said Price is a suspect in the Dec. 14 death of 78-year-old Ed Martin, whose body was found in his camper. A warrant was issued last Friday charging him with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault for an attack on Helen Martin on the same day. No charges have been filed in Martin's death.

Pabst says she may have an announcement regarding charges in the Missoula cases as early as Thursday morning.
