Seattle, Washington – On Sept. 21, 2006, Jordan Tautua-Jantoc shot and killed Michael Miller while handling a pistol at the family’s South Seattle home. In the years that followed, Tautua-Jantoc and his family wrestled with the legal implications of the shooting; Tautua-Jantoc ultimately pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to home detention.

At the time of his death, Michael Miller was living with his father, Tim Miller, and Lena Jantoc, his stepmother and Tautua-Jantoc’s mother. All three are named as defendants in the suit filed last month in King County Superior Court by Michael Miller’s mother, Michele Lucero.  More on SeattlePi.com
