[simage=5136,200,y,left] A murder trial is set to begin Monday in Marion County District Court, more than a year after the death of Theresa Miller. 32-year-old Terry Cobbins, Jr., of Des Moines, has been charged with first degree murder after being accused of shooting Miller in January 2011. According to court documents, Miller’s husband, 43-year-old Michael Miller, of Knoxville, allegedly paid Cobbins to commit the crime so he could be with another woman. Michael and Cobbins were co-workers at the time. Michael Miller will be on trial next month on the same charge. If convicted, both men could face up to life in prison without parole.
