A New York man is behind bars after Amherst County authorities arrest him in connection with a murder last month. 26-year-old Jermel Lawrence Storey was pulled over by Lynchburg Police around two o-clock yesterday morning. He was later arrested after officers learned he was wanted for questioning in the January 16th murder of Phillip James near Madison Heights. Storey faces first degree murder charges, and firearms charges. He's being held in the Amherst County Jail without bond. Authorities say the investigation is continuing and there could more arrests.
