Sentencing delay for man who admitted to killing wife

An incomplete probation report delayed the sentencing of a man who admitted to killing his wife. Last year, Alton Miller pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2015 death of his wife, Tiffany Knowles-Miller.

Acting Chief Justice Vera Watkins was supposed to hold a sentencing hearing yesterday, but the matter was adjourned to March 14 because the probation report was not ready.

Miller, a Jamaican with permanent residence, was initially charged with murder, but he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter due to his mental state.

Miller strangled his wife, the mother of his three children, and then burned down their home before turning himself in to police.

Sonia Timothy represents Miller and Roger Thompson is the prosecutor.
