Judge sentences Columbia man to 4+ years for mailing death threat

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS/AP) - The victim read an obituary notice describing her murder and the mutilation and burning of her body. The letter that accompanied the notice threatened her life, and was from her old boyfriend.

The investigation started in October 2006 after she reported them.

Now, Anthony I. Miller, 36, faces more than four years - 55 months - in prison for mailing the threat. That's followed by three years supervised release.

Miller will enter federal custody after completing his time in state prison. He is serving a three-year sentence there for stalking.

Miller's criminal record dates to 1988 and includes convictions on criminal domestic violence, criminal sexual conduct and unlawful use of a telephone.

This case was investigated by agents of the United States Postal Inspection Service and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. Assistant US Attorney Anne Hunter Young of the Columbia office  prosecuted the case.
