Tuscaloosa criminal investigator Branden Culpepper affirmed Tuesday that the Mill operator presented Darius Miles’ firearm to him the evening of the lethal shooting of 23-year-old Jamea Jonae Harris after Miles messaged him and requested that he do as such.
Culpepper’s declaration came during a primer hearing for a significant distance and Michael Lynn Davis, who faces capital homicide accusations for the demise of Harris, who was shot and killed close to the College of Alabama’s grounds on Jan. 15.

Paula Whitley, Tuscaloosa boss delegate head prosecutor, let AL.com on Tuesday know that “there’s nothing we could accuse [Miller] of.”
Both Davis and Miles cleaned away tears as their moms’ took to the stand to affirm that they would ensure their children would adhere to guidelines whenever allowed bond, however, that solicitation was subsequently denied by Tuscaloosa Province Region Judge Joanne E. Jannik.
The case will be shipped off a stupendous jury.

“We had some awareness of that,” Oats said when gotten some information about the Mill operator supposedly carrying the firearm to Miles. “Have zero control over all that anyone does beyond training. No one realized that was planned to occur. … Brandon hasn’t been in that frame of a difficult situation, nor is he in a difficulty with this situation. Wrong spot at some unacceptable time.”
Oats later tried to explain what he named his “lamentable comments” after getting analysis via web-based entertainment.
In an explanation delivered Tuesday night, Oats recognized that his remarks “ran over ineffectively.”
“We were educated by policing other understudy competitors being nearby, and policing more than once let us know that no other understudy competitors were suspects,” Oats said. “They were observers as it were. We comprehend that they have all been completely honest and helpful.
“Not the slightest bit did I mean to make light of the reality of this present circumstance or the awfulness of that evening. My requests keep on going out to Jamea Harris’ loved ones.”
Mill operator is the main scorer for the second-positioned Dark red Tide, averaging 18.7 focuses and 8.0 bounce back per game. He is an extended top-five pick in this mid-years NBA draft.
Examiners and guard legal advisors introduced veering records of the shooting. Whitley let the adjudicator know that there was more than adequate proof to continue with the body of evidence against Miles and Davis.

“The explanation that the firearm was given to Michael Davis was to insurance,” Mary Turner contended.
