James Miller, 57, was found guilty as charged on murder and felonious assault in connection to the death of Terry Young, 58, on July 8, the release stated.

The jury convicted Miller on two counts of murder, two counts of felonious assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of felonious assault causing serious harm.

Prosecutor’s allege Miller got into an argument with Young while “scrapping” in an alley behind Gebhart Street in Dayton.

“Witnesses reported that the men got into an argument over ten dollars that the defendant thought the victim had cheated him out of,” according to the release.

“The defendant stabbed the victim in the neck with a knife, and then got into his vehicle and drove over the victim before fleeing.”

Miller was arrested in southwest Virginia and later extradited to Montgomery County.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday, April 15, 2021.
