Emotional testimony from a woman who police say was the victim of a murder plot by her husband.

Police say that last February, Ronald Miller attempted to murder his 64-year-old wife by placing a wood shim in the accelerator control of her car. The shim prevented the suspect's wife from stopping the vehicle by applying the brakes.

This resulted in the victim crashing her car into a storefront and knocking down two brick pillars located at the Hilltop Plaza in Richmond Heights. A DNA sample taken from the wood shim found in the victim's vehicle matched Miller.

After the accident, Rhoda Miller was shaken, but more shaken by her husband's reaction when she called him to the scene.

"Came in, kind of looked around and I thought he would immediately come up to me and hug me and ask me if I was ok, and he didn't," Rhoda Miller said. "I had to approach him."

"So he didn't come find you?" asked the prosecutor.

"I wouldn't say come find me, I was right there," she replied.

Rhoda Miller described her feelings in an emotional sentence saying she was angry, in disbelief, and still can't believe what happened to her.
