BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Authorities say a Farmington man already jailed for murder will now also be charged with arson.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office said Friday 30-year-old Joshua Blake Price is being charged with first-degree arson in connection to a January fire that damaged a Grafton home.

Price had previously been charged with murdering the homeowner, Tyler Poston, whose body was found in June along a Taylor County highway.

Officials say Poston’s body had multiple gunshot wounds.

Price is being held without bond at the Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
