Clinton Eugene Priest, 53, was in Jefferson County District Court last week, where he was advised that he has been charged with multiple charges, including Second Degree Murder in the stabbing death of 32-year-old Robert Miller. Priest was charged with Second Degree Murder, four counts of possessing a weapon by a previous offender, and to violent crime counts.
Those charges come from the events of Sept. 23 of this year.
That day Wheat Ridge police were called to 4705 Routt Street by 29-year-old Clinton Priest. According to the arrest affidavit, he told police that his father, 53-year-old Clinton Priest, had just returned home from a bar and had blood on his clothing and his body. Minutes later, police were dispatched to the Rambling Rose at 10080 West 44th Avenue on a report of a man down and bleeding in the parking lot. They found Robert Miller on the ground. He appeared to be suffering from stab wounds. Miller was transported to a hospital but died a short time later.
Clinton Priest, 53, is being held on $500,000 bond at the Jefferson County jail. He is due back in court on Oct. 21 for his preliminary hearing.
