The United States Marshals Service announced Tuesday that they’ve added fugitive Shane Miller, the Shasta County man suspected of killing his wife and two daughters, to their top-15 most wanted list.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office says deputies had responded to the Millers’ home in Shingletown regarding a domestic disturbance once before, on April 20. U.S. Marshals say Sheriff’s deputies helped Miller’s wife, Sandra, leave for Humboldt County.

Miller found his wife later that day at a motel and brought her back home, according to the Marshals Service.

On May 7, Shasta County Sheriff’s dispatch got a call from the Miller residence. According to authorities, the dispatcher heard only a female voice sobbing and loud banging noises. Deputies arrived to find Sandra Miller and her two daughters dead from gunshot wounds.

Miller’s arrest history includes possession of a firearm, ammunition, cultivation of marijuana, resisting an officer and hit and run causing injury or death.

He was released from prison in 2007 after serving almost four years for having a machine gun and growing marijuana.

Miller is considered armed and dangerous, and is also accused of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

A $25,000 reward is offered for information that leads directly to Miller’s capture. Anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service at 1 (800) 336-0102.
