A father and son gunned down their neighbor in an alley behind their Texas homes during an argument over trash — and the victim’s fiancée recorded the slaying on video.
Johnnie, 67, and Michael Miller, 31, have been charged with murder in the Sept. 1 shooting of Aaron Howard as part of an ongoing feud, reported KTXS-TV.
The 37-year-old Howard had gone outside to throw out trash when the father and son confronted him, and all three men argued and threatened one another during the confrontation.
Abilene police said the elder Miller went outside armed with a handgun, and his adult son went inside the home he shares with his father and grabbed a shotgun.
Someone also went into Howard’s home and retrieved a baseball bat, according to investigators.
Johnnie fired first and shot Howard, and then the son shot their neighbor with a shotgun blast.
Howard’s fiancée Kara Box recorded the deadly argument on her cell phone and shared the video with the TV station.
“People deserve to know what actually happened, and, you know, they deserve to know John and Michael Miller are murderers,” Box said.
The video shows at least four shots were fired during the confrontation, and Box said she was almost shot by one of them.
“You can see that I stepped in between them, and I said, ‘You’re not going to shoot my husband,’ then he fired past my head,” Box said.
The Taylor County district attorney declined to comment because he had not seen the video, and he asked KTXS for a copy.
“Video evidence like this is always graphic and very difficult to watch, but it is consistent with the charges,” said district attorney Jim Hicks.
The Millers have each been charged with first-degree murder, and they are both out of jail on $25,000 bond.
Michael Moore breaks down why Trump is ‘scared’ of The Squad: ‘They’re the force out there!’
Legendary filmmaker Michael Moore revealed why President Donald Trump is so scared of the women of color in Congress known as The Squad.
The Squad is made up of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"So, Michael, when your political opposition tells you this is the play we’re going to run and the president underscores it, and they’re running this play, is there any — is The Squad blameless for giving the president a steady stream of oxygen and ammunition?" MSNBC's Brian Williams asked.
"I’m so glad he’s that frightened of them, both he and [Benjamin] Netanyahu are scared of them. And the reason they are is — and this is why Trump isn’t as dumb as he comes off," Moore said.
Trump has spent his vacation golfing, watching cable TV — and panicking about a recession: AP
While President Donald Trump has been able to golf frequently while on vacation in New Jersey, he may not return to DC well-rested.
"Trump has spent much of the week at his New Jersey golf club, many of his mornings on the links, his afternoons watching cable television and his evenings calling confidants and business executives to get their take on the market’s volatility," the Associated Press reported Friday.
"Though he has expressed private worries about Wall Street, he is also skeptical about some of the weaker economic indicators, wondering if the media and establishment figures are manipulating the data to make him look bad, according to two Republicans close to the White House, not authorized to discuss private conversations," the AP noted.
Rick Wilsons destroys Trump for ’punitive ‘dickishness’ and ‘performative assh*lery’ on HBO’s Real Time
Republican strategist Rick Wilson slammed the Trump administration on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher on Friday.
Wilson is the author of the 2018 book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever.
The GOP consultant said America needs to replace the "Goddamn oil lobbyist who runs the f*cking EPA right now."
"This is just punitive dickishness by these people," Wilson charged. "They're just doing this to be *ssholes, they want their base to be like, 'we're taking those regulations away."
"It is just performative assh*lery," he added.
