Greenville man who shot wife gets 25-32 years for attempted murder


A Greenville man who shot his wife in December has been sentenced to 25 to 32 years in prison, according to assistant district attorney Clark Everett. 

Calvin Lee Miller was convicted of attempted first-degree murder, felonious assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill/inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Miller shot his wife on December 5. His wife was taken to Vidant Medical Center with life-threatening injuries but survived. She got a protective order against him the day before he shot her.

The shooting happened at the J.P. Davenport and Son Farm Supply store and prompted a modified lockdown at nearby Pactolus School.

Sections of U.S. 264 were shut down during the search for Miller, and he was eventually captured near U.S. 264 and Highway 30.
