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, 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.
