Former Alabama Crimson Tide men’s basketball player Darius Miles has been charged with capital murder in connection with the shooting that killed 23-year-old Jamea Harris earlier this year. But despite the charges, it seems that he has not lost the support of his former teammates.
On Wednesday, Darius Miles was denied bond by Tuscaloosa County Circuit Judge Daniel Pruet, though the judge did acknowledge that were more factors in his favor than are usually present with capital murder defendants and said the bond issue will be revisited at a later date.
Though it was not the result Miles wanted from the hearing, he had support from some of his teammates throughout the whole process.
According to a report from AL.com, Alabama players Jahvon Quinerly –who is said to be a close friend of Miles – walk-on Jaden Quinerly, and forward Noah Gurley were all present at the hearing in support of Miles. The presentation from attorney Mary Turner also included comments from Alabama players in support of Miles receiving bond.
Judge Pruet acknowledged that there is still a chance that Miles could receive bond in the future, telling both the defendant and the prosecution that “This case is in its infancy.”
