The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office has made a second arrest in the murder of 24-year-old Phillip "PJ" Phelps.

The Sheriff's Office says 22-year-old Zachary McPeak was arrested Monday on a warrant charging him with murder.

McPeak was arrested in Hopkinsville by the Christian County Sheriff's Office.  He is in the Christian County Jail.
