Miller trial delayed by bomb scare Just as the first witness took the stand in Dwight Miller’s re-trial Tuesday, a bomb threat emptied the Haywood County Courthouse. Miller faces trial for the second time for the 1995 murder of Donald “Dono� Rice. When police called for a bomb-sniffing dog from Memphis, presiding Judge Terry Lafferty sent jurors and witnesses home. Court officials also called off the workday for the courthouse officers. Miller was convicted in August 1996, but the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals reversed his conviction in December 1998 and sent the case back to Haywood County Circuit Court for retrial.
