KALISPELL, Montana — A Kalispell man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend and her 15-year-old daughter on Christmas Day 2010 died of self-inflicted suffocation.
Toole County Coroner Dan Whitted tells the Flathead Beacon (http://bit.ly/1M5hCl8) that 38-year-old Tyler Michael Miller was found alone in his cell at Crossroads Correctional Center Sunday night with something tightened around his face. He says staff had been checking on him every 30 minutes.
Miller was serving two life sentences for the deaths of 35-year-old Jaimi Hurlbert and Alyssa Burkett.
Flathead County Attorney Ed Corrigan said Miller was on a methamphetamine-fed rage when he committed the murders. Court records say Miller told a detective after the killings that he "probably pulled off the most evil, manipulative, pathetic thing," and that he was happy about it.
