Ex-Alabama basketball player Darius Miles denied bond in capital murder case
Ex-Alabama basketball player Darius Miles, who is facing a capital murder charge for the January shooting death of 23-year-old Jamea Harris, was denied bond on Wednesday for the second time.
Tuscaloosa County Circuit Judge Daniel Pruet followed a similar decision made during a preliminary hearing in February that has kept the 21-year-old college basketball player behind bars since Jan. 15, according to The Tuscaloosa News.
The judge said the bond issue could be revisited at a later date.

According to court documents, investigators said Harris was sitting in the passenger seat of a car when she was struck by a bullet, which Davis is accused of firing off. Investigators also stated that Miles admitted to providing the handgun immediately before the shooting.

Defense lawyers suggested in an earlier court hearing that the two were reacting defensively following an altercation with a young man in Harris’ group.
According to WBRC, Davis is also being held without bond.
