Don Miller is scheduled to be released from prison in 2031. His recent application for parole has been denied.

The following story contains graphic descriptions of violence.

Lansing-area serial killer Don Miller has been denied parole.

Miller's crimes spanned the late 1970's and included the killing of four women. He was captured in 1978 following an attack on a brother and sister. The brother, Randy Gilbert, says that he has received a letter from the parole board confirming the denial. The letter indicates that Miller can apply for parole again next year.

Miller took a plea bargain which led to reduced charges of manslaughter and using a weapon in the commission of a rape, but a 1998 weapons conviction has kept him in prison.

If Miller serves his complete term with no more convictions, he will be released in 2031 at the age of 76.
