Two years after his murder, Richard Dudley’s killer was sentenced to 16 years in prison.
As a part of his plea agreement, Andrew Miller, 32, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder while armed for Dudley’s death.
According to court documents, in March 2015 Miller sold Dudley, 61, two bags of crack cocaine at the 500 block of Mellon St., SE. A short while after, Miller returned and accused Dudley of using counterfeit money for the drugs. Miller then stabbed Dudley in the abdomen and fled.
The medical examiner ruled Dudley’s cause of death a single stab wound to the abdomen.
Miller is expected to serve five years probation after his 16 year sentence is complete.
