FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (KNSI) A Fergus Falls man is now charged with murder in the overdose death of a 23-year-old man this summer.

Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Tiffany is charged with third-degree murder and causing great bodily harm by distributing drugs.

Tiffany was arrested this week while he was in the Otter Tail County jail on unrelated charges.

Prosecutors accuse Tiffany of helping Tom Rasmusson get the illegal drugs that killed him.

Rasmusson was found dead in his car in the driveway of a friend on August 10th. A syringe and a large spoon were in his lap.

An autopsy found Rasmusson died of an overdose of drugs including methamphetamines and heroin.
