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 (October 2nd).

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 in September 2018. Cameron Pettit, 28, of West Hollywood, California; Stephen Walter, 46, of Los Angeles; and Ryan Reavis, 36, of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, were originally charged with drug-related offenses, and Wednesday’s meeting added the allegation that their products led to the Pittsburgh native’s death.

The men face a mandatory minimum jail sentence of 20 years in federal prison and the potential for life without parole if convicted of either of the charges related to the rapper’s death. All have been arrested in recent weeks and remain in custody, and none has entered a plea. Attorneys for Pettit and Walter declined comment.
