The man charged with beating celebrity trainer Darius Miller into a coma has committed suicide, according to his attorney.
Apollo Holmes, 25, took his own life at his home on Christmas Day because he was despondent over being wrongly accused said his attorney, Bruce Harvey.
At least 10 thugs set upon Miller in the parking of a midtown nightclub as he walked Mayor Shirley Franklin’s two daughters to their car on Dec. 26, 2007 (LINK).
Miller had asked the men to stop videotaping the women.
The brutal beating left Miller in a coma that he has yet to recover from. Miller receives round-the-clock care at his mother’s home after being discharged from a rehab facility. His complex medical care is paid for partly by donations from friends, celebrity clients and money raised through fundraising events.
Holmes was the only man charged in the beating.
