PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) -University of Montana cornerback Jimmy Wilson was charged with murder after being accused of shooting a man during an altercation earlier this month.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told the Antelope Valley Press of Palmdale that Wilson was in custody Wednesday. A deputy, Kelly Simon, identified Wilson as a Montana football player.
Wilson was being held in Los Angeles County on $1 million bail. He turned himself in to authorities Tuesday in Lancaster, which is about an hour northeast of Los Angeles.
Authorities say he was involved in an altercation with Kevin Smoot, 29, and a woman who was related to Wilson.
Los Angeles County authorities said Wilson went to Smoot's home on June 2 and shot him, police said. Smoot was shot in the upper torso and later died, police said.
``It is in the California criminal courts and we will continue to determine the facts over the course of the next few days,'' Montana executive vice president Jim Foley told the AP.
Wilson, a San Diego native, is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.
Wilson started as a junior for the Grizzlies last season. He had 51 tackles and three interceptions for the Division I-AA playoff team.
