ATLANTA -- An Atlanta woman has been found guilty again in a re-trial of a murder she and her son committed in 2005.
Tonya Miller, 48, was convicted for the second time Friday in the death of 56-year-old Cheryl Miranda of Tampa, Fla.
According to information presented in court, Miller and her son Jabaris killed Miranda by hitting her in the head and stabbing her in the neck. They then set the victim's truck, with her body inside, on fire in a wooded area off of All Welcome Road in unincorporated south Fulton County on Mar. 4, 2005.
Miranda's body was identified by fingerprints, according to Fulton County District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones. Investigators determined that the victim's hands had been bound with rope and a belt had been fastened around her neck.
