A Garrard County man who pleaded guilty to charges that he helped strip marijuana for a Gravel Switch drug farm has appealed his sentence in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati.
In February, William "David" Miller, of Lancaster, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, two years less than the leader of the conspiracy, Michael Hays.
Hays' attorney said Miller may be a suspect in the death of Rusty Marshall, a Danville man, who was found dead in Hays' kitchen.
Miller first told police about the marijuana farm after he shot Hays in the back of the head at an Odon, Ind., gas station. He testified at his son's trial that he shot Hays because he was afraid for his and his family's lives.
