Ezra Miller pleads not guilty to burglary charges in Vermont case
Ezra Miller and his wife Kimberly were arrested last June after police said they broke into their Vermont home and stole several items from it, including a box of ammunition. It was the couple’s second run-in with the law, the first being a misdemeanor assault charge after police said they grabbed a dog in their home.
The incident that got Police Chief James A. Johnson into trouble with the law in June involved the couple and their dog, Police Chief James A. Johnson said at a news conference a couple of weeks later.
The Miller family had just purchased the dog from a neighbor who was going through some of the family’s things when the pair returned to their home in St. Michael’s with it, Johnson said at the time. He said the dog jumped into their home. He said a family member tried to grab it, but the woman was unable to get the dog away.
Kimberly Miller then grabbed a chair from a dining room table and hit the woman in the head, Johnson said.
“There is video of the entire incident which shows the dog being taken through the back door,” Johnson told reporters at the time.
Kimberly Miller was charged with second-degree assault and violation of a municipal ordinance.
A judge tossed out the assault charge against her, saying she did not show enough intent to cause injury and that the dog was not in her custody, Johnson said at the time.
The couple, who are both Vermont residents, said it was their first run-in with police in more than 10 years. The Vermont Attorney General’s Office said at the time that the domestic assault charge against Kimberly Miller and the breaking and entering charge against Ezra Miller were related.
