Casper woman pleads guilty to attempted 2nd degree murder after shooting her husband

(Casper, Wyo.) - This morning Casper woman, Dana Miller, changed her pleas to guilty to the two charges of attempted second degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. In January of 2016 Miller fired a 9mm handgun at her husband and injuring him. The shooting 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. It was reported in court that the victim had called Miller insulting names such as "Bitch" and "Scuba Steve". This escalated the argument and the victim told Miller that he was leaving the residence. Miller then stated that she was leaving and wanted the Glock 9mm that he had in his possession. 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. This morning Miller plead guilty to the charges in exchange for a plea deal with the state with no sentence recommendation but the sentences would run concurrent for both charges. Restitution may be brought at sentencing. #oilcity #news
