Miller Found Guilty

A Houston County circuit court jury is considering whether a convicted killer should be sentenced to die or spend the rest of his life in prison.

The same panel deliberated just over an hour before finding Leslie Miller guilty late Wednesday afternoon.

Miller was accused in the stabbing death of a Dothan woman.

Eighteen-year-old Alicia Peters was attacked during an altercation in a home on Herring Street in April of 2004.

Peters was treated at a Dothan hospital and released and refused to press charges.

But less than two days later, she died from her wounds.

Jurors deliberated two-days without reaching a unanimous verdict during Miller's first trial last September.

The jury in his second trial is being asked to recommend the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

A decision could come as early as Thursday afternoon.
