Assoc. Pastor Charged In Mpls School Worker Death
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A criminal complaint alleges an associate minister at a north Minneapolis church shot and killed Minneapolis North High School staff member Kristopher Miller because Miller was romantically involved with his estranged wife.
The complaint, filed Monday by the Hennepin County Attorney’s office, charges 40-year-old Derrick Griffin of Minneapolis with intentional second-degree murder.
The shooting allegedly stemmed from Miller’s relationship with a woman, identified in the complaint with the initials K.G., who was married to Griffin. K.G. said the two had been separated. Miller’s cell phone had a number of missed calls and text messages from K.G.
Video surveillance and a number of witness descriptions matched that of Griffin’s vehicle, a white Cadillac. Officers confirmed that Griffin’s cell phone was active in the area of last week’s shooting.
