Cameron Pettit, Stephen Walter and Ryan Reavis were previously charged with drug-related offenses. Wednesday's charges add the allegation that their drugs led to Miller's death.
Miller, a Pittsburgh native, was discovered unresponsive in his Studio City home on Sept. 7, 2018. The manner of death was certified as an accident, although it was later determined that the rapper died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.
