Trial set to begin for man accused of killing Goshen professor James Miller

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind.—The trial for the man accused of killing James Miller and attempting to murder his wife, Linda, is set to start on Monday.

Almost two years after the day he was charged with murder and attempted murder Winston Corbett is facing justice. Corbett is accused of beating and stabbing James Miller, while seriously injuring his wife Linda in their Goshen home.  

Miller was a professor at Goshen College when he was murdered during a home invasion in October 2011. 

The case went cold for seven years, due to an unknown match of DNA left at the scene of the crime. In 2018, investigators turned to a genetic genealogy database and found a match leading to an arrest. 

Corbett, 25, is facing one count of murder and another count of attempted murder. 

With courts closed Tuesday for the general election, opening statements and first witnesses are expected on Wednesday.
