Convicted Killer Attends Pretrial Conference in Second Murder Case


CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A convicted killer currently serving a life sentence for the stabbing death of a Hagerstown woman was in court Wednesday for a different murder.

Last October, Jeffrey Miles, 51, pleaded guilty to the 2010 murder of Kristy Dawn Hoke and was sentenced in November for first-degree murder. Although he admitted guilt before, Miles is now maintaining his innocence in the 1995 murder case of Angie Lynn Daley.

Miles was present for a pre-trial conference Wednesday afternoon in front of Franklin County Judge Carol Van Horn, who confirmed Miles will head to trial from September 22-26. Jury selection will take place on Sept. 8

In 2010, investigators found the bodies of both murder victims on the same day. After Hoke's body was discovered, Miles led police to Daley’s body at a farm near Washington and Antrim Townships.

Court documents show Miles allegedly told police he hit Daley with a 2x4 board, even as she pleaded for her life.

At the pre-trial conference, prosecutors submitted a list of potential witnesses they may call to the stand during trial, as well as an evidence list.

Miles' attorneys told the judge they will most likely not use any expert witnesses for the trial. The defense previously stated that one of their main concerns is jury selection due to publicity during the first murder case.

Miles did not show much emotion in the courtroom, but did tell Judge Van Horn that he is “working on something” when asked if he had any comments or concerns.
