PENSACOLA, Fla. — A jury on Wednesday found Michael Nealey guilty of second degree murder in the killing of Oklahoma police chief Lucky Miller at a Pensacola Beach hotel in November 2019.
Miller, 44, was the police chief in Mannford, Oklahoma, while Nealey was a Mannford police officer. The two men were in town for a law enforcement conference.
Prosecutors said the murder was the result of an alcohol-fueled night on November 10, 2019. The state says the medical examiner determined Miller was beaten and strangled or suffocated to death.
The medical examiner said Miller was internally decapitated, which would require the same force one would face in a car crash.
NEALEY TRIAL: 'Mr Nealey's blood alcohol concentration is not a defense for killing Lucky Miller', said prosecutor Trey Myers. A forensic toxicologist said both Miller & Nealey had BAC's at least 4 times the legal limit to drive. This vodka was found at the scene @weartv pic.twitter.com/yfYzSWlSaZ
