An East Spencer man awaiting trial for murder could see additional charges despite being jailed for nearly a year.

Malik Eric Johnson, 22, was charged in August 2017 with the murder of Jeffrey Allen Ramsey Jr. He was also charged with attempted murder after allegedly stabbing a woman in Asheville.

Ramsey was shot once in the chest at the Three Stars Mini-Mart in Salisbury before he was transported to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center by private vehicle. He died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Following a true bill of indictment, Johnson now faces additional charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill or inflict serious injury from a past case.

Existing charges included first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a weapon in prison, attempted murder and possession of a weapon by a felon.

Johnson is being held without bond on the murder charge, with a $360,000 bond on additional charges: $100,000 for robbery with a dangerous weapon, $10,000 for possession of weapon in prison and $250,000 for attempted murder.
