The Hinds County District Attorney issued the following press release:
Robert Bufford, 825 Powell Rhodes Dr. in Jackson, was today sentenced by Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill to Life without Parole plus 10 years for the Murder of Davie Miller, 219 Holland Ave. in Jackson. Bufford, age 25, was also sentenced in this case for Felon in Possession of a Gun.
Soon after being shot Miller told officers Bufford accused him of disrespect because Miller hugged him in the nightclub and knocked his hat off his head. Bufford ordered Miller to pick the hat off the floor and put it back on Bufford’s head. Miller did not comply.
Davie Miller suffered nine entry and exit wounds. He died August 3, 2011, in the hospital.
“An extremely dangerous killer is off the streets forever thanks to the Jackson Police Department, my prosecutors, and Judge Weill,” said Smith.
“Hinds County citizens can be proud and grateful for their fine work.”
