PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Pittsfield man who spent time in prison in New York on a second-degree murder conviction now faces drug charges in Massachusetts.

The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/YWa9kk ) reports that Richard Holliman was ordered held on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty to drug-related at his arraignment Thursday.

He was arrested Wednesday following a raid on his apartment. A woman who lives in the apartment was also charged.

Police say they found cocaine with a street value of about $7,000 and morphine valued at more than $2,000, along with $300 in cash and drug dealing paraphernalia inside the home.

According to New York state records, Holliman served time for a 1996 second-degree murder conviction in Brooklyn and was released earlier this year.

His lawyer did not comment.
