ORIGINAL:

A convicted murdered and accused child molester who was already incarcerated in the South Central Regional Jail in Kanawha County, WV now faces additional charges.

Shelton David Cash, 44, is now facing assault charges after he hit an officer in the face with a closed fist causing his nose to bleed. He is also accused of hitting a second officer during the altercation.

According to the criminal complaint, officers tried to restrain him, but Cash resisted.

Cash faces several charges including assault on a governmental representative. His total bond in Kanawha County is set at $130,000. He also has a bond in Ohio County on additional charges. That bond is set at $ 100,000.

Cash was originally arrested in August on child pornography charges after authorities served a search warrant at his Ohio County residence.  They found pornographic pictures of a child family member when they seized his cell phone, they said. The victim was 12-years-old when the sexual abuse occurred, they said.

Cash was also convicted of first degree murder in Marshall County, WV in 1992, court records show.
