The Greenville County Sheriff's Office said Jermaine Pressley, 43, was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin and possession with intent to distribute cocaine after the drugs were discovered inside his home.
Deputies had been at the home investigating the fatal shooting of his daughter, 23-year-old Nadeja Jermainequa Pressley, on Sunday.
Officials had previously told FOX Carolina that Pressley opened fire just after 1 a.m. on Sunday because he thought his daughter was an intruder attempting to gain entry into their home.
Pressley fired through the door, striking his daughter, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a coroner. An autopsy was planned for Monday.
Pressley, who has a prior conviction for possession with intent to distribute heroin, was denied bond a hearing on Sunday, according to the Greenville News.
He's currently being held at the Greenville County Detention Center on no bond.
The 43-year-old has not been charged in his daughter's death, but investigators said the investigation is ongoing
