Man who admitted to killing 4 Michigan women up for parole

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A man who admitted to killing four mid-Michigan women in the 1970s is up for parole.
The Lansing State Journal reports Thursday that 61-year-old Donald Miller is scheduled to meet next month with a member of the state parole board.

Miller was sentenced to 30 to 50 years in 1979 for the rape and attempted murder of two Delta Township teenagers. He also confessed to killing four women, but a lack of evidence forced the Ingham County prosecutor to offer him reduced charges in exchange for leading them to the bodies.

Seven parole hearings were held between 1989 and 1997. Relatives of the dead women and officials have opposed parole over the years.

Miller is being held at a correctional facility in Jackson and declined an interview.


Man accused of trying to illegally return 10,000 aluminum cans

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan man who authorities say was trying to illegally return more than 10,000 cans for 10 cents apiece is heading to trial.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports a judge ruled Wednesday there's enough evidence against Brian Edward Everidge of Columbiaville for the case to move forward.

State police Motor Carrier Officer Clifford Lyden testified he stopped Everidge for speeding in a truck April 27 in Livingston County. Lyden says the truck was packed with aluminum cans that Everidge said were from Kentucky.

Defense attorney Marcus Wilcox says Everidge was caught too early for the charge to stick, saying he “attempted to attempt to return the bottles.”

To legally get a bottle or can refund in Michigan, beverages must be bought in the state.
