Man Charged In Double Homicide In Washington County On Trial

WASHINGTON (KDKA) — A man accused of slaying his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend and leaving their bodies in an abandoned car in Washington County is on trial.

The bodies of 25-year-old Lynna Flippen, of Ellsworth, and 31-year-old Ernest Yarbough, of Pittsburgh, were found Thursday in a vehicle in Fallowfield Township in May of 2010.

Terrence Graham, 35, of Bentleyville, was charged in both deaths.

A history of protection from abuse filings indicates Flippen claimed Graham inflicted mental abuse during their stormy relationship.

Vince Varrone, an elderly man, told the jury he found the abandoned car while taking a walk near his home in Fallowfield Township.

“There was blood around this car, so I looked in the window and seen a naked woman,” he told KDKA-TV last year.

Police eventually found Yarbough’s body in the trunk.

Police say Yarbough was with Flippen when Graham confronted them. DNA and blood splatter experts testified there was a bloody trail inside Flippen’s house, indicating both victims experienced violent deaths.

Yarbough’s mother left the courtroom because she said it was too much for her to hear.

      If they would have handcuffed him esecially where the public could see it then the NAACP and Al Sharpton would have filed a complaint saying his civil rights were violated.

    If he is found guilty, stick a needle in his arm, as quickly as the law allows. I, for one, do not want my tax dollars used to keep his worthless a$$ alive in prison any longer than absolutely necessary.

    What a surprise, another black person committing murder.
    That is all they know, violence.

    Too bad it wasn’t your daughter Mr. Dirtball Harry.
