Alabama legend Brandon Miller brought a shooting rifle to the table.

Brandon Miller, a freshman basketball player for Alabama, is accused of supplying a weapon used in the slaying of a lady last month to a teammate.

Branden Culpepper, a Tuscaloosa police officer, testified that Darius Miles wrote to him and requested Miller to bring his revolver to him on the night of the death of 23-year-old Jamea Jonae Harris.

Culpepper testified at a preliminary hearing for Miles and Michael Lynn Davis, who have been charged with capital murder in connection with the killing of Harris on January 15 near the University of Alabama's campus.

Miles, who has since been ejected from the Crimson Tide program, reportedly disclosed to investigators that he provided the pistol used in the fatal shooting, but Davis was the one who pulled the trigger.

Culpepper stated that Miles disclosed to Davis the location of Miller's rifle on Tuesday.

Nate Oats, the Crimson Tide's head coach, said the team was aware of Miller's links to the investigation, according to Tuscaloosa's top deputy district attorney said on Tuesday that "there's nothing we could charge [Miller] with."

Despite emotional testimony from both men's mothers, Tuscaloosa County District Court Judge Joanne E. Jannik refused bond for Davis and Miles.

The case will be presented to a grand jury for further investigation.

Harris was shot while riding as a passenger in a popular college club near the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa.

Oats claimed that the program was "completely cooperating with law enforcement the entire time" and that the "whole situation is sad."

Oats responds, "We knew about Miller's involvement in Miles'." "Can't control everything anyone does outside of practice. Nobody knew that would happen.... Brandon hasn't been in any kind of trouble, nor is he in any type of trouble in this case. Wrong spot at the wrong time."

When Oats received twitter outcry for his "unfortunate words," he attempted to explain his position.

In a statement released Tuesday night, Oats said he "came across terribly" with racial remarks.

Law enforcement informed us that there were other student athletes around, but they have assured us twice that none of them are suspects, according to Oats. They were just spectators, according to their sources. From what we can see, everyone has been extremely open and helpful.

"In no way did I intend to minimize the severity of this situation or the tragedy of that night." My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Jamea Harris' family.

Whitley stated that there was sufficient evidence to continue the prosecution against Miles and Davis.
