Jeremiah Miller Death: Nevada Death Row Inmate Committed 2 Drug-Related Killings

Death row inmate Scott Dozier in Nevada was discovered dead by apparent suicide in his cell on Saturday, according to the state's department of prisons. 

The agency announced in a press release that they found 48-year-old inmate Dozier hanging from a bed sheet that was attached to an air vent in his cell at Ely State Prison. 

At 4:35 pm PT, his life support was turned off and he was officially declared dead. 

Dozier was scheduled to be put to death in July 2018 with a novel medication combination, but the execution was halted due to a court judgment on one of the drugs. 

Dozier was found guilty of first-degree murder for the 2002 killing and dismemberment of Jeremiah Miller. 

Due to the mixture of midazolam, Fentanyl, and cisatracurium that Nevada intended to use to execute him, his execution was postponed twice: once in November 2017 and again in July 2018. 

Concerns were raised legally that the medicine combination would amount to torture for Dozier in his last hours.
