Darius Miles, a former basketball player for Alabama, has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a 23-year-old woman on January 15.
According to Miles, Michael Davis received the murder weapon from him and reportedly killed Jamea Harris.
Upon his arrest the day of the murder, Miles was let go from the team.
Capital murder charges have been brought against both men. The charge against Miles is “aiding and abetting” Davis.
Mary Turner, Miles’ attorney, issued the following statement: We are disappointed that the government presented this case to the grand jury as capital murder considering the evidence uncovered during our investigation and the obvious weaknesses in the government’s case brought to light during the preliminary hearing, even though we are not surprised by the indictment because a person accused of a crime is not allowed to present any evidence to a grand jury.
According to authorities, the shooting looked to be the result of a dispute between the suspects and the victim.
Since then, it has come to light that Miles, who left the weapon in the car’s backseat with current Alabama player Brandon Miller, was the rightful owner of the weapon.
Miller has been playing since he hasn’t run into any legal issues. According the police, the freshman cannot be charged with anything.
Both Miles and Davis are being incarcerated in the Tuscaloosa County Prison and will likely face separate legal proceedings.
