Journal Gazette

A 73-year-old Paulding County Jail inmate charged with one count of aggravated murder died from natural causes Tuesday, the sheriff's office said Wednesday.

William R. Miller II was arrested in May on charges he shot his 19-year-old grandson, Evan Andrew Holcombe, the sheriff's office said.

Miller was transferred to a psychiatric hospital after he was booked.

In September, the sheriff said, he was admitted into another hospital for health issues.
