Former Michigan State University basketball star Keith Appling has been charged with murder in the death of a relative, prosecutors in Michigan said on Monday.

Appling, 29, is accused of fatally shooting 66-year-old Clyde Edmonds last month, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a news release seen by ESPN. Edmonds is the husband of Appling’s mother’s cousin, Worthy said.

“It is alleged that Appling had an argument with Mr. Edmonds over a handgun, and he fatally shot the victim multiple times before he fled the scene,” the prosecutors office said in the statement.

The former basketball star, who played for MSU from 2010 to 2014, has been in custody since May 24, and a formal court arraignment date has yet to be set.

Appling’s girlfriend is facing one count of accessory after the fact and one count of lying to a police officer in the case, the Detroit Free Press reported.
