A man accused of murder now has an added drug charge.

Police arrested Trustin Jones, 20, on Wednesday.

He is accused of shooting Derek Pelphrey, 23, on Ridgepoint Run Tuesday night.

Pelphrey later died.                                          

New court documents show that officers found 66 molly pills in the car where Jones was located.

Molly is considered to be a purer form of ecstasy.

They said the high number led them to believe they were being sold.

Jones is now charged with trafficking, in addition to the murder charge.
