Michigan woman at center of internet love triangle that left two dead explains ‘shocking motive’ on 20/20

GENESEE COUNTY, MI — Sharee Miller, who was convicted of conspiring with her internet lover to kill her husband in Vienna Township in 1999, is about to retell her story to a national audience.

Miller, now 50 and an inmate at Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility, will be interviewed during a segment of 20/20 that’s scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11, on ABC.

A news release from 20/20 says Miller confesses to her crimes for the first time on television and “explains her shocking motive.”

Prosecutors convicted Miller of first- and second-degree murder after detailing how she enticed Jerry Cassaday of Missouri to kill her husband, Bruce Miller.

Sharee Miller and Cassady met in an internet chat room and Cassaday committed suicide after Sharee Miller broke off their relationship following her husband’s death.

Cassaday left behind hundreds of internet notes that implicated Sharee Miller in her husband’s death.

Miller’s trial, billed as the internet’s first murder case, started in December 2000 and drew intense interest from local and national media.

Court TV covered the entirety of the trial and the proceeding later spawned a book that appeared on the New York Times best seller list and a TV movie.

In 2016, Miller, who had proclaimed her innocence previously, admitted she was involved in killing her husband in a four-page typed letter to former Genesee Circuit Judge Judith A. Fullerton.

Bruce Miller was found dead Nov. 8, 1999, at his Vienna Township business, B&D Auto Parts. He had suffered a shotgun wound to his neck.

Although police initially believed Bruce Miller was a victim of a robbery-gone-bad, Cassaday’s suicide and the electronic evidence he left behind turned investigators’ attention to his wife.

A trailer for Friday’s 20/20 segment on Sharee Miller is available here.
