Former Alabama Basketball Player Indicted On Capital Murder Charges

Written by Tony Ghaul

Former Alabama men’s basketball player Darius Miles and his friend Michael Lynn Davis have been indicted on capital murder charges involving the case of Jamea Jonae Harris.

Miles and Davis were arrested on January 15 and charged with the capital murder of Harris. The shooting allegedly occurred early Sunday morning in the Strip off University Blvd. near campus.

Davis is alleged to have shot Harris while she was in a vehicle, which leads to a capital murder charge in Alabama.

Miles acknowledged providing Davis the gun in the case and is charged with capital murder for “aiding and abetting” him in the shooting, according to Miles.

Miles, a junior, was kicked off the Crimson Tide basketball team following his arrest. He played on the team from 2020 to the 2023 season.

Miles,a potential lottery pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, has not faced any discipline from the team or school.

Both Miles and Davis remain in custody in Tuscaloosa.
