BROKEN BOW, NE — New information is adding another tragic layer to the alleged murder-suicide in central Nebraska. University of Nebraska at Kearney officials say the victim was set to graduate today.

The Nebraska State Patrol says police found 45-year-old Angie Miller dead in her home in Broken Bow early this morning.  Investigators identified her ex-husband, Ryan Miller, as the suspected killer. Authorities found him dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound hours later.

A UNK spokesperson says Miller was a graduate student majoring in elementary school counseling. She was set to graduate Friday at UNK with her Master of Science in Education degree. She already owned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from UNK and a Master of Arts in Education. Miller was working as a counselor at North Park Elementary School in Broken Bow.

UNK has made counselors available. Visit the counseling center in room 144 of the Memorial Student Affairs Building or call 308.865.8248.
