Mac Miller death investigation leads to charges against three suspects
Three men arrested in the investigation of the death of Mac Miller have now been charged with supplying the drugs that resulted in his passing.
According to the Associated Press, Cameron Pettit, Stephen Walter, and Ryan Reavis have been charged with conspiring and distributing the drugs.
The three suspects were previously charged with drug-related offenses.
In a grand jury indictment was unsealed today, charges were added alleging that their drugs led to Miller’s death.
All three men were arrested last month and currently remain in custody and have yet to enter a plea.
If convicted of the charges related to Miller’s death, all three could face the potential sentence of life without parole. They currently face a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
Pettit and Walter, who was also charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, are scheduled to be arraigned on the new charges on Oct. 10. Reavis, who was arrested last week in Arizona, does not have an arraignment date set yet.
