Judge schedules Jan. 13 for start of murder trial
Frederick Miller is accused of killing girlfriend
ALBION Orleans County Court Judge James Punch today set Jan. 13 as the tentative starting date for a murder trial.
Frederick Miller, 61, of Carlton is accused of killing his live-in girlfriend on March 4. Miller allegedly bludgeoned and stabbed Rachel Miller several times. He has been charged with second-degree murder.
The couple allegedly had a fight on March 4 at a home they shared on Oak Orchard River Road. Rachel Miller, who was formerly married to Miller’s cousin, was 53 when she died as a result of blunt force trauma combined with multiple stab wounds, according to an autopsy.
Miller’s body was discovered early in the morning on March 4 by an Albion school bus driver.
Punch also set Oct. 23 for a Huntley hearing to determine which of Frederick Miller’s statements made to police will be admissible at trial.
