KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Jurors on Friday will continue to hear testimony in the penalty phase of Everett Miller‘s trial.

The jury convicted Miller in September in the fatal 2017 shootings of Kissimmee police Officer Matthew Baxter and Sgt. Sam Howard.

On Thursday, jurors got a glimpse of Miller’s life as a U.S. Marine, years before he became a convicted cop killer. The defense called several of Miller’s colleagues from his time when he enlisted as a private in 1989 to the time he retired as a master sergeant at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
