Guard Miller was shot and killed with his own service weapon after being overpowered by two inmates during an escape attempt at the Susquehanna County Jail. Guard Miller was securing the prisoners for the night when he was attacked.
The county sheriff was alerted to the scuffle and when he entered the room he was shot twice and wounded. The two prisoners fled into New York where one of them was arrested approximately two hours later. The second prisoner returned to Susquehanna where he turned himself in. Both were charged with murder, jail breaking, and pointing a firearm.
Guard Miller had previously served as a game protector for the Pennsylvania Game Commission and as police chief for the Clifford Police Department.
