Defendant Accused of Stabbing Girlfriend Arraigned on First-Degree Murder Charge

A DC Superior Court judge arraigned a domestic homicide defendant.

Ronald Miller is accused of stabbing his 28-year-old girlfriend, Tiffany Hardy, to death on Feb. 8, 2021. Hardy was found inside a residence on the 1600 block of E Street, NE, with multiple stab wounds to her neck and body, according to court documents. She was pronounced dead on scene.

Nearly one year after his arrest, the 42-year-old defendant was arraigned on the sole count of the indictment during a Jan. 26 hearing. He pleaded not guilty.

Miller is currently being held at DC Jail. Defense attorney Jason Tulley asked for his client to be moved to the Correctional Treatment Facility due to poor conditions at the jail. Judge Rainey Brandt agreed to make the recommendation.

Parties are slated to reconvene for a status hearing on Feb 16.
