State police: Western Pa. man held wife with gun

IMLER, Pa. (AP) — State police have been searching for a western Pennsylvania man who is charged with holding his estranged wife against her will at gunpoint.

Troopers from the Bedford barracks say they responded to a domestic dispute in Imler on Friday night.

That’s when the woman told police that 49-year-old Ronald Miller Sr., of East Freedom, was waiting inside her house when she got home from work. The woman told police he held her at gunpoint for five hours, during which he allegedly slapped and head-butted her and threatened to shoot the woman.

Police say the woman escaped to a neighbor’s house and alerted authorities. A Special Emergency Response Team arrived, but found Miller had already left.

Online court records show Miller is wanted on charges including burglary, unlawful restraint and terroristic threats.
