A Scotland, S.D., man sentenced to life in prison for the murder and assault of his 4-month-old son has lost his appeal. The South Dakota Supreme Court upheld a circuit court decision this week to admit certain testimony, and that evidence given during trial supported the jury's guilty verdict against Chris Miller. Miller, 40, was convicted by a jury of second-degree murder and aggravated assault in January 2013 for the death of his 4-month-old son, Jacob. He was sentenced in February 2013 to life in prison for the murder conviction and 50 years for the assault conviction.
