Two suspects are in custody after they allegedly bragged about killing a man who was seeing one of the pair’s ex-girlfriends, authorities in Tennessee said.
Miller was being held on a $500,000 bond, while Blackwell was denied bond.
Investigators believe Miller allegedly targeted and killed Glass with Blackwell’s help on the morning of Dec. 1.
The affidavit states Miller “bragged to individuals” Glass “was dead” and “about where he shot Glass” and “about how ‘cool’ it was.”
On the day of the slaying, Elizabethton police received calls about a car revving its engine on a road and officers responding to the complaint then received an additional call about shots fired nearby, WJHL reported.
In the area, officers found a crashed vehicle with Glass’ body inside as well as a wrecked Chevrolet Tahoe that was registered to Miller and abandoned at the scene. Inside the car, the affidavit states, police recovered a.380 semi-automatic pistol and spent shell casings of the same caliber.
An additional affidavit shows police claim Blackwell, armed with a 9mm handgun with laser sight, was at the scene at the same time as Miller and used the firearm to shoot Glass’ windshield.
“Following the shooting Blackwell bragged to individuals that he had shot Phillip Glass and was sure he had killed him,” the affidavit states.
The affidavit notes police recovered 9mm shells at the crime scene.
Glass had been shot multiple times.
