INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - State police say a rural Indiana man fatally shot five people in a dispute over a drug deal.

In a probable cause affidavit, police say they believe David E. Ison killed Roy Napier, Napier's estranged wife, their two adult children and a neighbor after Napier raised the price and came up short on an order of the painkiller oxycodone.

Ison is charged with five counts of murder in the Sept. 25 slayings near Laurel in southeastern Indiana, but has yet to appear in court on those charges. He's being held on $5 million bond on an unrelated attempted robbery charge.

According to the affidavit, Ison's girlfriend said he later told her that 2 of the men were armed and tried to rob him.
