AUGUSTA COUNTY -- A man accused of making pornography with a 13-year-old girl he met at church is now facing additional charges.

Darby Powers was arrested in March on 40 counts of child pornography, but investigators say they found more child pornography on Powers' computer as part of the on-going investigation. Now, Powers faces an additional 18 charges.

Investigators say some of the pornographic video featured girls between four and 12-years-old.

An investigator with the Augusta County Sheriff's Office arrested Powers after getting a tip from Twitter. He said Powers created an account to solicit people for adult movies.

If convicted, Powers could spend up to life in prison.
