Oct. 14, 2002 – Kenmore Boston, 32, pleaded not guilty in Territorial Court on Wednesday to charges that he murdered his fiancee, Chamonie Miller, in August.
Boston, who has been released into his parents' custody under house arrest and electonic surveillance, was apprehended on Oct. 30. Judge Edgar Ross has scheduled his trial for Jan. 13.
Ross had initially set bail for Boston at $500,000 cash. But at a hearing on Tuesday, he changed it to $250,000 in property and an unsecured bond that his parents posted.
Miller, a card dealer at the Divi Carina Bay Casino, was reported missing after she failed to return home early Aug. 5 after working a late shift the night of Aug. 4. Her body was found on Aug. 9 inside her Ford Explorer at the bottom of Krause Lagoon. An autopsy determined that she likely died of blunt trauma to the head.
Boston is the father of Miller's 3-year-old son. She also was the mother of 5-year-old twins.
