May trial set for South Dakota murder suspect


A South Dakota man accused of killing his infant son is to stand trial next spring.

The 10-day trial for 37-year-old Chris Miller of Scotland is scheduled to begin May 14 in Tyndall.

Miller is accused of killing 4-month-old Jacob in March by shaking and beating the child. He has pleaded not guilty to several charges, including murder.

Defense attorneys have been seeking the medical records of Miller's wife, alleging that Stacy Miller was depressed before and after giving birth and was unstable. Her attorney has said that Miller's attorneys want to cast suspicion on her. The Press & Dakotan newspaper reports that a judge this week said he will review the medical records to see if there is any material that is relevant to the case.
