WALDORF, Md. (WUSA) -- Charles County Sheriff's authorities say they have arrested a Waldorf man for shooting Michael Eugene Milstead. Milstead's body was found in the trunk of a car on July 15 in the 5500 block of Piney Church Road.

Twenty-seven-year-old Bruce Matthew Lyles, Jr. is charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, assault and arson.

Authorities say Lyles and Milstead had an argument before Milstead was shot. Detectives linked Lyles to the murder after DNA was analyzed and they executed several search warrants, say authorities.

Lyles was already in jail on an unrelated charge.

Detectives continue to investigate the case.
