Murder case moved to Del Norte

Miller to face charge here in Dickson death

GOLD BEACH, Ore. — The Curry County District Attorney’s Office dropped murder and abuse of a corpse charges against Josiah Marlon Miller on Tuesday, saying that Miller has been charged with killing Michelle Dickson in Del Norte County and will be tried here.

“Since we were last in court the state has gotten information that indicates pretty clearly the murder occurred in California,” District Attorney Everett Dial said in Curry County Circuit Court. “Prior to learning that, it was unclear whether it occurred in Oregon or California. California has filed murder charges against Mr. Miller for the murder of Miss Dickson.”

Del Norte County District Attorney Mike Riese filed charges against Miller last week. He said Tuesday the decision to do so comes from evidence that implicates Dickson was killed within the county’s borders.

Former teacher Maureen Jahn, who retired in June, said she created the “Turkeys from Schools” program in 2002 to help out local families that wouldn’t get a Christmas dinner otherwise.
