Friends, Family Mourn Slain Nevada Soldier, Wife

GARDNERVILLE (AP) - Friends and family are mourning a Nevada
soldier and his wife who were fatally shot March 1 in their home
near Tacoma, Wash.

Ivette Davila, a soldier at Fort Lewis, Wash., has been charged with murder in the deaths of 27-year-old Army Sgt. Timothy Miller, originally of Gardnerville, and his 25-year-old wife, Sgt. Randi Miller, originally of Lowell, Mass.

Davila also has been charged with kidnapping the couple's 6-month-old daughter, Kassidy. The infant was not harmed and is in the custody of Timothy Miller's parents in Gardnerville.

Miller went straight into the military after graduating from Douglas High School in Minden in 1998.

A memorial featuring a picture of the slain couple and their daughter, stuffed animals and flowers stands outside the home of Miller's parents.

Miller, an operation room specialist with the 47th Combat Support Hospital, served in Iraq and South Korea during a 10-year military career.

The couple had been married for five years.

Local funeral arrangements for Timothy Miller are pending.

The motive for the shootings has not yet been determined.
