SUSPECT STILL FACING DECADES IN STATE PRISON IN CHARGES IN CONNECTION TO THE STATE CASE AGAINST HER IN KNOTT COUNTY
An Indiana woman who stands accused of shooting a Kentucky State Police trooper last year in Knott County, KY., has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in a federal firearms case related to that case.
Tiffany R. Miller, 38, of Kendallville, Indiana, was charged in U.S. federal court in Pikeville, KY., on September 1, 2021, with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
In her guilty plea agreement, Tiffany Miller admitted to stealing a gun and a truck in Knott County back on July 10, 2021. Law enforcement authorities say the incident resulted in Miller shooting Kentucky State Trooper Bradley Couch in the shoulder, when he tried to arrest her.
Tiffany Miller pleaded guilty to the federal gun charges back in March of this year; and on Friday, July 15, she was sentenced to 10 years on each charge, which will run consecutively. Tiffany Miller was also ordered to pay more than $17,000 in restitution.
Tiffany Miller remains charged with attempted murder of a police officer, wanton endangerment of a police officer, third degree assault of a police officer, theft of an automobile over $10,000, wanton endangerment, theft of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and resisting arrest, in Knott County Circuit Court.
That state case is still pending, with the next hearing for Tiffany Miller is tentatively scheduled for Friday, September 2.
