Inmate serving life for murdering wife has died

Lincoln — A Nebraska inmate serving a life prison term from Lancaster County for first degree murder died while incarcerated in Tecumseh. 41 year old Kevin Miller died Thursday at the Johnson County Hospital, according to the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.

Miller was being treated for a medical condition, but the department said a cause of death hasn’t been determined.

Miller was sentenced to life for murdering his wife in 2014. He pleaded no contest in 2015 to the murder charge and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

As is the case whenever an inmate dies in custody, a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
