CROSSVILLE, Tenn. - A couple has been arrested in the six-year-old murder case of a woman who was believed to have been dragged for several miles before being left for dead. Arlene Miller and Jimmy Dean Miller have been charged with first-degree murder, felony murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the death of Linda Guge, authorities from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Cumberland County Sheriff's Department said Friday. Guge's body was found by hunters in rural Cumberland County on New Year's Day 2001, and investigators believe she was killed the day before. Her body was so disfigured that it took medical examiners several days to identify it.
FAIRFAX, Va. - A man convicted of killing a 21-month-old boy should spend 40 years in prison, a Fairfax County jury said. Mohammad A. Ahmad, 24, was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday in the September death of Myles Simon. The jury took less than 15 minutes Thursday to recommend the maximum 40-year prison sentence. Ahmad did not testify at the three-day trial. Fairfax Circuit Court Judge Leslie M. Alden will sentence Ahmad in June. The judge can impose or reduce the 40-year term. The toddler attended a day-care center that Ahmad's wife, Jillian, ran out of her townhouse in Kingstowne. On Sept. 12, she left Myles and two other children in the care of her husband. When she returned several hours later, Myles was dead.comments powered by Disqus
