MOSCOW, Idaho -- A Moscow man charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of an acquaintance now faces a drug charge.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that 28-year-old Nathaniel H. Nisbet has been charged in 2nd District Court with possession of a controlled substance.

Police say they found methamphetamine in a backpack while searching a trailer following a Nov. 10 shooting.

Prosecutors say the Nisbet shot and killed 42-year-old Charles "Pat" McMichael during a confrontation at a Moscow home.

They say McMichael was supposed to help Nisbet's estranged wife change the locks on her mobile home, but McMichael found Nisbet inside with a 9 mm pistol.

Nisbet has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. A trial is scheduled for March 18.
