Arendall now faces charges of second-degree murder and possession of meth in Sumner County, a felony theft charge from Robertson County and a shoplifting charge out of Nashville, WKRN reported.

The second-degree murder charge comes from the overdose death of 22-year-old Macy Rogers in January 2021, officials said.

Rogers was found inside a vehicle and died at the hospital/ Her death was due to a combination of meth and Fentanyl, police said. Fentanyl is an opioid that is often mixed with other drugs to enhance the effects, but a small amount can be deadly.

Arendall was booked into the Wilson County jail and he now faces additional charges of shoplifting, evading arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal impersonation, police said.
