LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Three men arrested during the investigation into rapper Mac Miller’s deadly overdose last year have now been charged with providing the drugs that killed him, U.S. prosecutors said Wednesday.
A grand jury indictment that was unsealed in Los Angeles accuses the men of conspiring and distributing cocaine and oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl that caused Miller’s death.
Cameron Pettit, 28, of West Hollywood, California; Stephen Walter, 46, of Los Angeles; and Ryan Reavis, 36, of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, were previously charged with drug-related offenses. Wednesday’s charges add the allegation that their drugs led to Miller’s death.
Miller died of an accidental overdose on September 7th, 2018 at the age of 26. An autopsy later found fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in his system.
The men face a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and the potential for life without parole if convicted of either of the charges related to Miller’s death.
All have been arrested in recent weeks and remain in custody, and none has entered a plea.
