(AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A convicted felon accused of selling the gun used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair has been indicted.
The federal grand jury on Wednesday charged Adrian J. Gilliam Jr. with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Gilliam, of La Vergne, is accused of selling a loaded 9 mm pistol to McNair's mistress, Sahel Kazemi, for $100 two days before McNair was shot.
Police said the 20-year-old waitress shot McNair at his downtown condo July 4 before turning the gun on herself.
He remains in federal custody and faces 10 years in prison and a $250,000 if convicted.
Gilliam has been out of prison seven years since serving time in Florida for murder and attempted armed robbery.
McNair, a married father of four, retired from the NFL last year after spending most of his career with the Tennessee Titans and his last two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
