A Michigan serial killer serving time for brutally killing at least four women in the 1970s has once again been denied bail.
Miller, now 67, was denied parole again by the Michigan Department of Corrections on Thursday, May 19.
According to a press release issued by — Eaton County Prosecuting Attorney Doug Lloyd, “…Miller will not be considered for parole again for five years. Miller’s next parole eligibility date is Aug. 29, 2027.”
The confessed serial killer is currently a prisoner at the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility in Jackson. He admitted to killing four women — Martha Sue Young, Marita Choquette, Wendy Bush, and Kristine Stuart — in East Lansing between Jan. 1, 1977, and Aug. 14, 1978.
In the summer of 1978, he also violently stabbed Randy Gilbert three times and choked him after raping Gilbert’s sister Lisa, then 14, in their Delta Township home. Gilbert lived, and Lloyd thanked him and Lisa for their testimony, which he says helped the parole board to keep the violent killer incarcerated.
“I would like to thank Randy Gilbert as well as his sister Lisa for their tireless efforts to keep this serial killer behind bars,” Lloyd said in the release.
If Miller serves his full sentence for his conviction in the Gilbert case, he is scheduled to be released in 2031.
An indictment against Miller in Ingham County on second-degree murder charges in the deaths of two of his victims — Stuart and Young — never went to trial.
Miller pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter in exchange for leading police to Young’s and Stuart’s bodies. He was sentenced to 10 to 15 years in prison. He later revealed details of Choquette’s and Bush’s deaths.
In 1994, prison officials found a garrote, a strangling device made from a shoestring and barrel buttons, in Miller’s cell at Kinross Correctional Facility in Chippewa County. A jury convicted him of possessing a weapon in prison, adding another 20 to 40 years to Miller’s sentence.
