University Athletes Lawsuit in Alabama Case: The family of Jamea Jonae Harris, a woman tragically murdered near the University of Alabama in January, has initiated legal action against three individuals who were student-athletes at the university at that time, among them being Brandon Miller, later selected as the No. 2 overall pick. Unlike his peers, Miller isn’t facing criminal charges, yet he may find himself involved in the jury trial sought by the victim’s family.
The incident unfolded on the morning of January 15 at a location where police investigators assert that Miller was present. They further contend that the weapon used in the crime was taken from the back of Miller’s car.
However, it appears he might not have been directly implicated, differing from his two companions. Michael Lynn Davis is accused of firing the gun and committing the crime, while Darius Miles is alleged to have provided the firearm to Davis.
Despite the accusations, the complainants are seeking testimony from all three individuals to unveil the truth of the incident. Miller’s legal representation argues that he never handled the weapon, unaware of his companions’ intentions.
They assert that the firearm was concealed under clothing in his car, suggesting he had no knowledge of its presence. The unfolding trial may bring clarity, possibly directly from Brandon’s account.
