Casper woman faces new charge in Sunday night shooting incident

Natrona County Circuit Court reported a new charge of attempted second degree murder has been added to Casper woman Dana Miller. Miller was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault, one count of possession of a deadly weapon and now attempted second degree murder following a shooting incident that occurred at Foxhill Apartments. According to police records, Miller stated during an interview with Casper PD that the male became too intoxicated and started calling her insulting names which caused her to be frustrated. She stated that she was in the bedroom of the apartment while the man was calling her insulting names when she grabbed the Glock 9mm from under their mattress. She later walked into the kitchen of the apartment where her husband was standing and pointed the black handgun in an attempt to make him stop calling her names. Reports show that the male did not heed her warnings and continued to insult the woman, at which time Miller pulled the trigger of the handgun shooting him in the chest. Reports show that she dropped the handgun, placed a towel on him and called 911 for assistance. Monday, officers spoke with the male who was shot who stated in court records that during the evening of the incident he was going to stay in the living room for the remainder of the evening. He also decided to take the Glock 9mm from under the bed into the living room because he didn't trust Miller's state of mind. Reports show that Miller began demanding that he give her the gun back which he did not and advised that he was going to leave the apartment. Once he gave the handgun to Miller she stated, "I'd really like to shoot you right now." He reportedly told her to do it and she shot him. He concluded the interview and stated that the argument was spawed over Miller taking his debit card and refusing to give it back. #oilcity #news
