Milwaukee man charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide

Twenty-three-year-old Milwaukee resident Daivon Miller was charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide as a repeat offender in the Columbia County Circuit Court. He is being held on a $75,000 cash bond in relation to an alleged shooting following a car chase from Lake Delton to Wisconsin Dells.

According to court documents, Miller and an ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend had an argument at the Wilderness Resort in Lake Delton. Miller allegedly came into the room where the couple was staying and pulled a gun on them. Miller and the boyfriend then went outside to discuss some matters, according to the boyfriend’s testimony, at which point Miller sprinted toward the boyfriend’s car, pulled around in front of the couple, pepper-sprayed them, and took off.

An arrest warrant was issued on October 12, and on October 13 Miller was served the warrant as he appeared in court via video from Columbia County Jail. District Attorney Jane Kohlwey, said: “The defendant has a history of operating a vehicle without owners’ consent and fleeing officers. He has no ties to the Columbia County community. He is from the city of Milwaukee and came up to the Dells to specifically commit the crime that he is charged with in this case.”

For his part, defense attorney Ronald Benavides said: “I’m going to assert, respectfully, that it looks more like reckless-type behavior, as opposed to attempted first-degree intentional homicide.”
