Martin Miller Sentenced to Life in Prison a 2nd Time in Wife's Murder

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A Lawrence man has been sentenced for the second time to life in prison without parole in the death of his wife more than 10 years ago.  Martin Miller was sentenced Wednesday for the strangulation death of 46-year-old Mary Miller at their home in Lawrence in 2004. He was convicted in 2005 but the Kansas Supreme Court ruled in 2014 that he should get a new trial based on an erroneous jury instruction.  Martin was convicted a second time in April.  According to the Lawrence Journal-World,  prosecutors argued that Miller strangled his wife because he was having an affair and wanted to collect $300,000 in life insurance.  The defense contended Mary Miller died of natural causes. His attorney said he would file a notice of appeal within 14 days.
