A police officer in Pennsylvania will not receive any charges after shooting and killing his pregnant wife. The unborn baby was also killed. There has been no mention of the officers name in any news reports, but the name of his deceased wife, Joan Miller has been released.
Miller was 34 years old at the time, and the unborn child was 22 weeks old.
“She was shot and killed. She was pregnant at the time. The baby did not survive,” Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele told CBS News.
“We are investigating the case. There’s some indications at this point it was an accidental discharge on the gun. He is a off-duty state trooper and was cooperative with us throughout this investigation,” Steele said.
