Brandon Miller and the murder case that overshadows March Madness explained

As the men’s college basketball season heads towards the start of the NCAA tournament, one thing has become clear to players, coaches, pundits and fans catching up before filling in their brackets: Brandon Miller is having a stellar year. The standout freshman guard is considered one of the top collegiate basketball players in the country and the go-to for an Alabama Crimson Tide team that will likely rank No. 1 and seek its first Final Four in school history. Miller is expected to be a top-five pick in this year’s NBA draft.

But the 20-year-old phenomenon has faced questions in recent weeks after he was linked in court to a fatal shooting of a woman in downtown Tuscaloosa in January. A Tuscaloosa Police Department detective testified last month that Miller shipped a gun to then-teammate Darius Miles, who then passed the gun on to Michael Lynn Davis, a friend of Miles’s who is not affiliated with the university. Police say Davis shot into a vehicle Jan. 15, killing 23-year-old Jamea Jonae Harris. Miles, 21, and Davis, 20, were charged with capital murder and indicted by a grand jury on Friday.

Miller has not been charged, is not considered a suspect and, according to the university, was a cooperating witness for police, who suffered a severe setback for failing to take disciplinary action against the freshman. Jim Standridge, Miller’s attorney, has disputed the claims and said in a opinion that his client does not own a gun and “never touched the gun” used in the killing. Miller first spoke about the shooting on Wednesday, saying it was “really heartbreaking.”
