Hill City Man Shot In Officer-Related Shooting Found Competent To Stand Trial
A Hill City man who was shot in an officer-related shooting in February has been found competent to stand trial.
District Court Judge Sarah McBroom ruled Monday that 44-year-old Roy Thomas Miller is competent to proceed on the criminal charges previously filed by the Itasca County Attorney’s Office. Those charges are five counts of attempted second-degree murder, five counts of first degree assault on a peace officer with deadly force and two counts of domestic assault. Miller is accused of using a handgun to shoot at officers who were responding to a report of domestic assault on February 10th.
Bail for Miller remains set at $1 million without conditions or $500,000 with conditions. Miller’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 12th.
