Hayden sentenced to life in prison

A young Camp Lejeune Marine in the summer of 1972, George Hayden wanted to reconnect with his Ohio high school sweetheart. But she was married to another Marine.
Hayden solved the problem by putting two bullets into the back and head of 27-year-old Sgt. William Miller.
Thirty-seven years later, an Onslow County jury convicted Hayden of first-degree murder and a judge sentenced him to life in prison Wednesday afternoon. He hugged his wife for a long moment before bailiffs took away his cigarettes and led him to jail.
After the trial, the Miller family lined up along the sidewalk outside the courthouse making phone calls and talking to reporters.
“I never lost hope; I always knew we’d get here,” said Sharron Aguilar, who kept the case of her brother’s death alive for nearly four decades.
While William Miller was in Okinawa, Hayden moved into Miller’s Piney Green area home, played house with Miller’s wife and newborn, and allegedly began to sign his name to Miller’s checks.
“He stole my brother’s home, wife and child, and money,” said Charlie Miller, the youngest of six in Miller’s family.“He tried to steal his identity, and when that didn’t work he stole Billy’s life.”
