Sheriff: Man Arrested In Murder Lands Back In Jail After Violating Bond

Posted: Updated:

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) --  He's been out on bond for just 20 days, but a Montgomery County man charged in connection with a 2011 murder is back in jail.

55-year old Nickie Miller was arrested Tuesday night off of Route 219 in Jeffersonville. According to the Sheriff, they were working on a separate case at the time when they were alerted through Miller's ankle monitor, that he was violating conditions of his bond.

According to Sheriff Fred Shortridge, Miller knew that what he was doing was violating the bond.

He has only been out of jail since April 20, when a judge lowered his bond. He was arrested in 2015 in connection to the December 2011 murder of Paul Brewer. He was found shot to death in his bed after a robbery. The sheriff's office has been keeping a very close eye on him, and they're not surprised that in less than three weeks since his release he is back in custody.

"From the day he was charged, he got bond hearings, He got it lowered. And he got out on bond. Very simple, he knew the conditions, he violated the conditions and then we got a warrant to arrest him," Sheriff Shortridge told LEX 18.

Miller is still facing the murder charge, along with robbery and persistent felony offender charges.

Paul Brewer's family tells LEX 18 that they are glad that Miller is back in jail.
