Sammie Miller sentenced to life in prison in killing of girlfriend
The family of a Milwaukee woman gets justice for her murder.
Sammie Miller, 29, was sentenced to life in prison without parole in connection to the death of Audrey Scott, his girlfriend. He was found guilty of First Degree Intentional Homicide, and Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, in May.
During sentencing, the prosecution said Scott's death was a cold-blooded execution.
Last year in July, Miller and Scott were at a tavern in Milwaukee. Miller became angry after he saw Scott dancing with someone he mistook for a guy. He beat her up, then drove to Racine County and shot her in a wooded area.
The case was cold for more than a month until Scott’s remains were found.
CBS 58 spoke with Scott’s mother after the sentencing.
“There was no DNA to compare it to my daughter, but it compared to my DNA that it was a billion times likely to be a relative of mine. My daughter was in that truck that night, and I gotta live with my baby’s gone, and she’s not coming home and he’s not going to anyone either, ” said Carrie Scott.
During victim impact statements, some of her family couldn’t hold back their feelings. “You know you killed my [sic] niece, you did kill my niece!" blurted out Scott's aunt.
The prosecutor added Miller was out on supervision for another homicide the time Scott was killed. He apparently told his friend, he did it because he didn’t want to go back to jail.
