Father, son shoot neighbor dead amid argument over trash

John & Michael Miller: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

John Miller, 67, and his son, 31-year-old Michael Miller, were arrested after Aaron Howard, 37, was fatally shot on September 1, the Abilene Police Department announced.

They then placed their guns at the heads of Box and Howard's brother, respectively, and ordered them to stay put. She told the paper that she and her husband then watched the elder Miller, John, walk to the dumpster, pull the mattress out and toss it back on Howard's property. Box noted that Howard's nieces and nephews had been with them in the backyard. "That's when John [Miller] pulled a pistol out of his shorts", Box said. Both Millers reportedly shot Howard, who died of his injuries.

Someone also went into Howard's home and retrieved a baseball bat, according to investigators.

"Back off. If you come closer to me, I'm gonna kill you", John Miller says calmly.

Box and Howard had thrown the mattress in the dumpster a couple days earlier, she said. "That's when the old man fired past my face and shot Aaron in the chest twice with the pistol". Much of the video is bleeped out due to vulgar language, but threats can be heard from both sides, as John Miller continues to tell Howard to "back off".

"If you come within three foot of me I'm gonna shoot you", the father says.

Howard is overheard saying, "shoot me" before someone off camera says, "you're dead, point it".

Police believe that at least five shots were fired.

You can then hear the two start to argue over what sounds like the "stand your ground" law in Texas, which gives individuals the right to use lethal force in self-defense as long as the person has the right to be where they are being threatened, usually pertaining to one's own property.

What do shoppers think of the new Jack's brand launched by Tesco?
The first Jack's store opened in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire yesterday while another will open in Immingham, Lincolnshire today. Tesco attempted to go down the discount route in the 1980s, with its Victor Value brand, but later ditched the concept.

On Sept. 1, John Miller went outside to throw trash away, police said.

The video shows at least four shots were fired during the confrontation, and Box said she was nearly shot by one of them.

Abilene Police Department in a press statement posted responding to calls about shots being fired around 10.15am, with attending police arresting father and son on murder charges after the neighbor dying shortly after at hospital. Howard tells the Millers, "You're dead".

The two shirtless men are holding the weapons while engaged in a verbal confrontation with Howard.

Footage has been released showing the moments a Texas father and son executing a man following an argument over trash.

"Video evidence like this is always graphic and very hard to watch, but it is consistent with the charges", said district attorney Jim Hicks. Both are out on $25,000 bail, KTXS reported.

"People deserve to know what actually happened and you know they deserve to know John and Michael Miller are murderers", she said.

Box says she has moved out of the neighborhood, but remains in Abilene.
