NC man pleads guilty to 1990 rape, murder

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – A Winston-Salem man has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the 1990 rape and strangulation of a 74-year-old woman in 1990.

Under a plea deal, 39-year-old Michael Dwayne Miller was convicted Tuesday in Forysth County Superior Court in the death of Theressa L. Nicholson in her apartment in August 1990. Judge John O. Craig sentenced Miller to 30 years in prison.

Nicholson’s death remained a cold case for years. Investigators with the Winston-Salem Police Department said they caught a break in 2009 after DNA evidence re-examined from the case led them to Miller.

At the time, Miller was serving an eight-month sentence at the Dan River Work Farm in connection with a September 2008 conviction on misdemeanor larceny charges unrelated to the homicide, as well as a probation violation.
