Prosecutors charged Miller in August for the March shooting death of Jamarko Ward at the Spot nightclub near Pine and Yale.

The affidavit filed in the case says that Ward and Miller were fighting over stolen drugs.

Ward reportedly hit Miller with a glass bottle, and that’s when the affidavit says Miller shot Ward.

Two others were shot as well. They survived.

Wednesday, Miller’s sister spoke out about his arrest.

She says that Jordan Miller would never kill anyone. She says her brother doesn’t carry weapons and that he doesn’t do any kind of drugs.

She says that police are just using witness testimony, going off hearsay.

Police say while the case isn’t “clear cut,” they feel they have the evidence to prove that Miller is guilty.

Court records show Miller was charged with possession of a stolen gun in July and he that he pled guilty to drug charges in 2015.

Miller’s sister says she will continue to fight for his innocence.
