A dentist who killed his daughter’s sister was a hero to her and others in the community, her parents have said.
Amber Miller died in 2016, after the woman’s dentist boyfriend, Roberta Miller, cut off her own tongue and used the severed limb to feed a hungry pig.
The victim’s parents said the attack on Amber’s sister, Ashley Miller, had an impact on her entire family, and her father, Bruce Miller, said that as a result, he has lost two sons.
“We can’t even begin to imagine how terrible that would be to her parents, and our hearts are broken for them,” Bruce Miller told Fox News.
“Amber was a really special young woman, and I was blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of her life,” he added.
The attack on Ashley Miller occurred at a family vacation home in Virginia in 2016.
A neighbor told police that the woman, who lived alone in her car, had been eating pig’s blood from the family’s garden in the garden and had been threatening her father and brother with a knife.
A neighbor told the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office that the attack was captured on surveillance video, and that the family reported the incident to police.
The family filed a police report in September, and after speaking with police, the Millers’ lawyers asked a judge to dismiss the case.
In a statement, the family said that “the attack was not justified, and it was a cowardly act, with the intent to harm and destroy the victim.”
They also said that the case was not resolved until the family agreed to the court-appointed mediator, who they said worked for free.
The court-ordered mediation concluded in April.
A hearing is scheduled for July.
