Former Alabama basketball player Darius Miles has been indicted on murder charges in the January 15 shooting death of a 23-year-old woman in January.
Miles claims that he gave the murder weapon to Michael Davis, who allegedly killed Jamea Harris.
Miles was fired from the team after his arrest on the day of the murder.
