CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — Two Harrison County residents allegedly killed a man for talking to police about a break-in.

Police arrested two Lumberport residents—Shane Andrew Miller, 21, and Tracy Renee Miller, 19—on Wednesday and charged them with first-degree murder in the death Clarksburg’s Darrell Golden. The 58-year-old Golden was reported missing March 17, and his body was found March 20 near a pond on Jones Run Road.

The criminal complaint said Golden’s disappearance was believed linked to a breaking and entering in Clarksburg that Shane Miller had committed but Golden knew about. Investigators said tips led them to Shane and Tracy Miller after Shane was heard discussing Golden’s death. He was allegedly upset that Golden had talked to police about the crime at the Blue Bird store.

Investigators allege Shane and Tracy Miller beat Golden with beer bottles, knocking him unconscious. The criminal complaint said Shane Miller dragged Golden to the Jones Run pond and Tracy Miller held his head face down in the water until he was dead.

According to the criminal complaint, the pair left his body underwater but the water level dropped and the body was spotted by a fisherman. The Millers allegedly left their bloody clothes at the scene and tried to clean blood out of Shane Miller’s car.

They are both in the North Central Regional Jail without bail.

    I am Shane's aunt. I no longer live in WV, but his mother and father are good, hard working, and decent people. He was raised by a good mother and father so let's leave them out of it. I am very sorry for the victim and his family, but I will stand by my family. Whatever happened to "INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY"?

    I think they should be locked up for the rest of their lives and then let God do what he will with them. God will be their final judgement.

      They dereved what they get

    they had bloody clothes & blood in the car. A quick trial & a rope from the "tallest tree" is all they deserve. death penalty reinstated. Those 2 took the life of another human being. People that do such a evil deed do not deserve to live.

    Send both of them to the Korean DMZ, give them each a camera, force them to walk north and let nature take its course.

    These 2 maggots should burn for this.

    Innocent till proven guilty!! Everyone has them guilty before they even go to trial ! I know both of them and I can tell you they would never hurt anyone.And for Shane Miller's past.He did what was asked of him and had his life together,doing drugs was not what he was about. He had a good job and was just happy being with his wife,so tell me why in the hell someone who fought so hard to get his life together would do that? You need to stop judging what you know nothing about! I wonder how many skeletons everyone else here has in their closet..anyone care to share?

  • KnownShaneSinceMiddleSchooll

    I know both of them and you can say what you will but I can NOT see either of them doing this & yes I have sympathy for this man and his family & hope justice is brought upon who ever had did this but I believe Shane and Tracey Miller are innocent.
