KANAWHA COUNTY, WV -

A convicted murderer man is in jail after authorities said he molested a young family member.

Shelton Cash was picked up in Ohio County, WV this week.

Kanawha County authorities got a tip from a family member that he had pictures of the sexual abuse on his cell phone. They said he visits the victim in Kanawha County, WV on the weekends.

Authorities served a search warrant at his Ohio County residence and found the pornographic pictures when they seized his cell phone, they said. The victim was 12-years-old when the sexual abuse occurred, they said.  

They also found a loaded gun, which he is not supposed to have. Cash was convicted of first degree murder in Marshall County, WV in 1992, court records show.

He's been charged with possessing child porn and felon in possession of a firearm.

Cash could also face additional charges in Kanawha County, WV where investigators believe the actual abuse occurred.

He's in the Northern Regional Jail with bail set at $100,000.
