CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The second trial of a Casper man accused of shooting his wife to death after she fled to a neighbor's house is set to begin in Thermopolis on Monday.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/MRdHyY ) Thomas Miller's trial was moved from Natrona County to Hot Springs County in an effort to empanel an impartial jury.
District Judge Catherine Wilking ruled that a local jury was likely to be too biased against Miller to put him on trial again in Natrona County. He's accused of shooting and killing his wife, Natalie Miller, on March 27.
Miller's first trial ended in a mistrial after the victim's mother, Debbie Boggs, broached a topic previously deemed off-limits in court. Miller's attorneys also asked for a change of venue, citing media-generated negative publicity.
