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.
WATCH: Larry Kudlow wilts under barrage of questions about Trump’s conflicting trade war comments
Larry Kudlow, who appeared to have been drinking before his FOX News appearance last Sunday, probably wished he was drinking this Sunday after his stammering performance on CNN where he faced a barrage of questions from "State of the Union" fill-in host Brianna Keilar.
Speaking from France where he is attending the G7 conference with Donald Trump, Kudlow was put on the spot over the president's comments where he seemed to express regret over launching a trade war with China.
Mnuchin begs Chris Wallace: Take the president ‘very literally’ except on being ‘the chosen one’
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin insisted on Sunday that Americans should take President Donald Trump's hyperbolic comments "very literally" -- but he allowed for some exceptions.
During an interview on FOX News Sunday, host Chris Wallace noted that Trump had recently "ordered" companies not to do business with China.
"When the president says something, how seriously, how literally should we take it?" Wallace asked.
"I think most of the time, you should take it very literally," Mnuchin insisted. "I think sometimes he says things that are meant to be a joke."
White House spokesperson ridiculed for ‘pathetic’ spin on Trump’s trade war admission: ‘Does she think we believe that?’
Hours after Donald Trump blithely admitted that he had "second thoughts" about his trade war with China that has damaged the U.S. economy and helped set the stage for a possible recession, White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham was forced to issue a clarification about the president's comments.
Addressing Trump's G7 response about his tariffs, widely interpreted by the press as expressing some regret, Grisham issued a statement saying the president meant that he wished he had increased his market-destroying tariffs even more.
"The President was asked if he had ‘any second thought on escalating the trade war with China,'" White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham relayed. "His answer has been greatly misinterpreted. President Trump responded in the affirmative - because he regrets not raising the tariffs higher."
