CASPER -- A Wyoming judge declared a mistrial in the case of a man accused of killing his wife after a witness made an inappropriate comment. Natrona County District Judge Catherine Wilking made the ruling Tuesday after a witness said defendant Thomas Miller had an affair with Miller's first cousin. Miller's attorney immediately asked for a mistrial, saying the comment would taint the jury and that the topic had previously been deemed off limits. It was the second day of the trial. A new trial has been rescheduled for December. Miller has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the March death of his wife, Natalie.
