Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Missoula police request a drug test for the man accused of shooting and killing a Big Sky High school student.

Detectives served 29-year-old Markus Kaarma a warrant requesting a blood draw to determine if he was impaired when allegedly shot and killed 17-year-old Diren Dede on April 27.

In the warrant, detectives say police officers found a jar of marijuana in Kaarma's pantry the day of the shooting.
    
According to the warrant, Kaarma's partner told a neighbor that Kaarma smoked marijuana in the garage and someone had taken marijuana and pipes in a previous burglary.
    
Kaarma is charged with deliberate homicide in the April 27 death of 17-year-old Diren Dede. Prosecutors say Kaarma fired four times at an intruder in the garage.
