It appears the children of a Casper murder victim will not be called to testify at the trial of the man accused of killing their mother.

At a hearing for 46-year old Thomas Miller, both the prosecution and the defense said they probably will not call the two children who were at the Miller's home in late March, on the night Miller is accused of murdering his wife, Natalie.

Miller has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental illness to one charge of first degree murder, one charge of aggravated assault, and two charges of child endangerment.

His trial is scheduled for the week of October 28th, and prosecutors have said they will not seek the death penalty, if he is convicted on the murder charge.
