Michael York Miller was sentenced to life without parole today for the April 12, 1999, murder of Shawnita Campbell. Besides giving Miller life in prison for murder, Superior Court Judge William Rumer sentenced him to five more years for using a firearm to commit a crime. Addressing the court before his sentencing, Miller, 43, maintained his innocence, saying investigators in 2002 were told who actually killed Campbell, but did not pursue the lead. This video is of Miller reading his prepared comments.
