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.
He ‘can’t understand why he is being impeached’: CNN reports Trump is asking ’why are they doing his to me?’
President Donald Trump is reportedly "distracted" by impeachment while vacationing at Mar-a-Lago as the United States Senate trial begins.
"A source close to the White House who speaks to Donald Trump regularly said the President has appeared 'distracted' by the impeachment trial that begins on Tuesday, telling people around him Friday night at Mar-a-Lago that he 'can't understand why he is impeached,'" CNN's Jim Acosta reported Saturday. "'Why are they doing this to me,' the source quoted Trump as saying repeatedly."
Rod Rosenstein’s legal defense in lawsuits from Strzok and Page won’t hold up under oath: legal experts
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein claimed responsibility for the release of text messages between then-FBI attorney Lisa Page and then-FBI official Peter Strzok.
Emails released in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed the highly unusual release by Sarah Isgur Flores, who at the time was the spokesperson for Trump's Department of Justice (she is now overseeing CNN's 2020 election coverage).
Flores instructed reporters to not cite the release of the documents to the Depart of Justice.
Neo-Nazi arrested by FBI in terror plot before his comrades tried to kill him for being ‘stupid’ and ‘incompetent’: report
On Saturday, CBC News reported that several members of a white supremacist group called The Base have been arrested in Georgia and Wisconsin. This comes one day after another set of raids in Maryland and Delaware that caught Patrik Mathews, a former reservist from Manitoba who crossed into the United States illegally and has been missing for five months after being accused of recruiting for the extremist group.
One new key detail came out about Mathews in an affidavit used to secure the arrest warrants for Mathews' alleged compatriots, according to the CBC: "Although the document suggests the group member believed to be Mathews stayed with a Georgia cell member for months, he is later reportedly characterized as 'incompetent' and 'stupid' and is seen as a liability to the local group. In fact, he eventually becomes a new potential murder target."
