Prosecutors File Formal Drug Charges Against Crossbow Killer

BENTONVILLE, AR - Prosecutors have filed formal drug charges against Justin Trammell, who was convicted as a juvenile of killing his father with a crossbow.  The new charges stem from when Trammell was allegedly caught earlier this year with marijuana plants in a Bentonville apartment.

The 23-year-old remains free on $15,000 bond.  He is scheduled for arraignment on Monday before Circuit Judge David Clinger.

Trammell faces charges of felony manufacturing of marijuana, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.  A roommate, 25-year-old Christopher Michael Haughn, faces the same charges as Trammell.

At one time, Trammell lived with Westside shooter Mitchell Johnson.  The two were together when Johnson was arrested on drug and weapons-related charges last year.

Trammell was 15 when convicted of murdering his father with a crossbow in September 1999.
