File-This Jan. 14, 2012 file photo shows Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller walking along the sidelines during the second half of an NFL divisional playoff football game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass. ESPN reported that Miller might have to sit out at least six games for violating the league's drug abuse policy. Previously, it was believed Miller was facing a month long suspension to start the 2013 season. Miller had repeatedly expressed confidence he was going to successfully win an appeal of any pending penalty, insisting he had "done nothing wrong." Now, Miller is unlikely to go forward with such an appeal, which was expected to be heard Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, ESPN reported. (AP Photo/Stephan Savoia, File)

DENVER (AP) Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller could be called as a witness in the death penalty case against a man accused of stabbing five people to death in a Denver bar in October.

Miller is among more than 100 potential witnesses in the case. He is listed as a possible acquaintance of suspect Dexter Lewis, but there is no indication Miller had ever met or knew anyone in the case.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/ms28m6g ), Miller could be called to testify in the sentencing phase of the trial if Lewis is found guilty.

Lewis faces 16 counts in the attack at Fero's Bar and Grill. The charges include multiple counts of first-degree murder, felony murder, robbery and arson.
