Who is Darius Miles? Former Alabama Basketball Player Darius Miles Indicted on Charges of Murder
Former Alabama basketball player, Darius Miles, has been indicted on murder charges in the shooting death of 23-year-old Jamea Harris on January 15th. Miles, who was dismissed from the team after his arrest on the day of the murder, claims he gave the murder weapon to Michael Davis, who then allegedly shot Harris. Both men have been charged with capital murder, and Miles is accused of “aiding and abetting” Davis.
Miles’ attorney, Mary Turner, expressed disappointment in the government’s decision to present the case as capital murder, citing the evidence uncovered during their investigation and the weaknesses in the government’s case. The shooting was believed to be the result of an argument between the suspects and the victim.
Further investigation has revealed that the gun legally belonged to Miles, who left it in the backseat of current Bama player, Brandon Miller’s car. Miller has not been charged with any crime and has continued to play for the team.
Miles and Davis are both being held in Tuscaloosa County Jail and are expected to have separate trials.
The tragic events surrounding the murder have shocked the Alabama community, especially given Miles’ previous status as a basketball star. The outcome of the trial will be closely watched by the community and basketball fans alike.
