Man charged with second-degree murder in girlfriend’s death

A 30-year-old King County man has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend.

The Tacoma News Tribune reports that Scottye Miller had 15 previous domestic violence convictions dating back to 2002, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors allege Miller killed 33-year-old Tricia Patricelli in her Auburn apartment Tuesday, two weeks after finishing a prison sentence for harassing and threatening her. She had a no-contact order against Miller.

Miller remained jailed on Friday in lieu of $1 million. He is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 15.

Women other than Patricelli have filed for protection orders since 2002 to keep Miller away from them, according to the AP. Miller was arrested at a bus stop Tuesday.
