Von Miller named as potential witness to 2012 murder, according to report

Von Miller was listed as a potential witness to murder and could be called to testify.

Denver linebacker Von Miller was one of more than a dozen people named as a potential witness in a murder trial against a man who fatally stabbed five people in 2012. Although he's listed as a "possible acquaintance" Miller is said to have had no direct-involvement in the incident, according to a report from 9news.com.

The case stems from an incident at a Denver-area bar on October 17, 2012. Dexter Lewis allegedly fatally stabbed five victims before helping set the building on fire, according to police investigators. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Lewis, and Miller was listed as a potential witness in court documents released by the Denver District Attorney's Office.

According to the report from 9news.com, who obtained the documents, Miller is labeled as a "lay witness" and a "possible acquaintance of (a friend of Lewis) and may testify about prior events and the Defendant's attire." The report says the Broncos are aware of the situation and have been told Miller had "zero direct involvement" in the murders.

There is a chance Miller may be called to testify during the trial, which could occur during the NFL season. Miller's status for the start of the upcoming 2013 season remains unknown as he is currently facing a suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
