      Woman convicted of convincing online boyfriend to murder her husband loses latest appeal

      A Mount Morris Township woman convicted of enticing her online boyfriend to kill her husband has lost her latest appeal.

      Sharee Miller was convicted back in December of 2000 of convincing Jerry Cassaday, an ex-police detective, to kill her husband, Bruce Miller.

      Cassady later committed suicide. In his suicide note, Cassaday implicated Sharee Miller in the death of Bruce Miller.

      Sharee Miller was sentenced to more than life in prison for the crime.

      However, upon appeal, Miller was released from prison when a judge threw out the confession, claiming it violated the 6th amendment right to face an accuser.

      From 2010 until 2012 Miller was free from prison while the case continued to wind through the court system. The U.S. Supreme Court even ruled on the case since this changed legal precedents on confessions.

      A federal court ruled last week that the confession of Cassaday was admissible at Miller's trial.

      A TV movie was even made about this case called, "Fatal Desire."
