Man convicted of killing 2 Kissimmee police officers to appear in court

A man convicted of killing two Kissimmee police officers will be in court on Monday.

Everett Miller was found guilty in 2019 for the murders of Kissimmee Police Officers Sgt. Sam Howard and Matthew Baxter. A jury recommended the death sentence for the man.

On Monday, a hearing is being held for Miller as the defense will argue that he deserves life instead of the death penalty.
