Indiana professor's wife hopes for arrest year later


The widow of a northern Indiana college professor fatally beaten in his home says she still believes a year after his death that police will find the attacker.

Goshen College biology professor James Miller was killed in the attack early Oct. 9, 2011, and his wife, Linda, was badly injured.

Linda Miller tells The Goshen News and The Elkhart Truth that she has been working closely with Goshen police detectives and believes they're working hard to solve the attack in the city about 25 miles southeast of South Bend.

Goshen Police Chief Wade Branson says evidence taken from the scene of the 58-year-old Miller's death continues to undergo DNA testing at a state police laboratory. Branson says the department continues reviewing about 100 leads that have come from the public.
