Casper man who shot wife to death during argument sentenced to 60 years to life in prison


CASPER, Wyoming — A Casper man who shot his wife to death after she fled to a neighbor's house during an argument has been sentenced to 60 years to life in prison.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports ( ) Thomas Lee Miller was sentenced Tuesday for second-degree murder in the March 26, 2013, death of Natalie Miller. He also received an eight- to 10-year consecutive sentence for aggravated assault on his mother-in-law, Debbie Boggs.

Police say the Millers had a disagreement about money just before the shooting, and Natalie Miller ran to a neighbor's house, dialing 911 on a cordless phone as she fled. Thomas Miller is accused of shooting his wife several times at the neighbor's doorstep.

The couple's two children — a 6-year-old and a 2-year-old — were in the house at the time.
