The Martin Miller Trial

Martin MillerMartin K. Miller was on trial for the July 2004 murder of his wife, Mary. Miller initially told police he woke up about 6 a.m. on July 28, 2004, and found his wife in bed in a different room, not breathing. At first, police said that a coroner didn't think there were any signs of foul play. But Miller was later arrested after a coroner conducted an autopsy and ruled the death a homicide. A Douglas County jury deliberated about six hours before finding him guilty of strangling his wife.
