KENNEWICK, WA - A man accused of going on a killing spree in Las Vegas on Sunday has ties to the Tri-Cities.

Jerad Miller, 31, and his 22-year-old wife, Amanda Miller, are accused of killing two police officers and one civilian. They then committed suicide.

Miller's Facebook page says he attended Kennewick High School. School district records show he attended one semester during his freshman year. Also on his Facebook page, Miller posted Saturday "The dawn of a new day. May all of our coming sacrifices be worth it."

Jerad Miller has an extensive criminal history in Benton County. The Las Vegas Review Journal is reporting district court records show in June 2001, he was convicted of third-degree malicious mischief. In February 2001, he was found guilty of third degree theft. Also in 2001, he was convicted in Benton County Superior Court of harassment and taking a motor vehicle without permission.

In August 2002, Miller was convicted of a DUI and of obstructing a police officer. In April 2002, he was convicted of assault with intent to cause injury.

The investigation is currently centered on the couple's Las Vegas apartment. So far investigators have found volumes of written and printed racist and anti-government literature.
