PC Miller of the Matheson Detachment had arrived at Joe's Texaco and was in the restaurant when a young man entered with a 12 gauge shotgun, approached Constable Miller from behind and shot and killed him. The assailant was disarmed by another Constable and a restaurant patron.


The accused was arrested at the scene, charged and convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for 25 years. The Town of Matheson renamed the local arena the Vern Miller Memorial Arena.
