MADISON CO, Fla. -- A fugitive was arrested in Madison County on Thursday, December 13, according to Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart.

On that day, investigators with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office received information that the fugitive, 43-year-old Victor Mature Miller, was hiding at a house in Greenville. Sheriff Stewart says that Miller had been on the run and hiding out for several months.

A team of Sheriff’s Office personnel all responded to the residence, located on Reedbuck Loop, to arrest Miller.

When they arrived, Cpl. Kevin Stout and K-9 Onyx secured the rear of the home and other members of the arrest team went to the front of the residence.

They spoke with the home owner and a woman, 33-year-old  Sonya Denise Coleman.

The home owner said that he know Miller, a man known to him as “Frog.”

At the same time, investigators learned that Coleman was Miller's girlfriend. Sheriff Stewart says that she said no one else was in the home and that she didn't know where Miller was. Investigators explained to Coleman that she would be arrested for obstruction if she wasn't telling the truth.

The arrest team, including another K-9, Max, went in through the front door.  K-9 Max led Cpl. Anderson and the arrest team to a back bedroom with a closed door. Once the door was opened, K-9 Max located Miller: he was hiding in a corner behind the headboard of the bed.

Miller was arrested. He's charged with violation of parole related to his second degree murder. Coleman was also arrested for obstruction of justice.
