BREAKING: Anderson sentenced to life in prison
After reading aloud excerpts of notes and text messages found on Hannah Miller's cellphone describing the horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of Christopher Terrell Anderson, as well as her desperate attempts to break free from him, Oneida County Circuit Judge Mike Bloom sentenced Anderson to life in prison with no eligibility for release on extended supervision at any point.

Bloom handed down the sentence on Tuesday afternoon, just over a week after Anderson, 31, plead guilty to the execution-style killing of his former girlfriend, the mother of his daughter, on a local roadside last summer.

Miller's body was discovered in a ditch on River Bend Road at about 11 a.m. June 30, 2021 with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds.
