Jamea Jonae Harris, a 23-year-old Birmingham mother to a 5-year-old boy, was fatally shot early Sunday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Former University of Alabama basketball player Darius Miles was detained, facing a capital murder charge for pulling the trigger. Miles allegedly opened fire on a car she was riding near “The Strip,” a neighborhood near campus.

Her devastated mother, DeCarla Cotton, said Harris was a beautiful soul everyone loved.
