Atlanta woman sentenced to life plus 10 years for murdering girlfriend

Tonya Miller of Atlanta, 48, was convicted last week for killing her former girlfriend in 2005, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Miller received a life sentence plus 10 years for murdering Cheryl Miranda of Tampa, Fla. She was convicted on charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and concealing a death. The verdict was handed down Friday. She was first convicted of the murder in 2008 but the Georgia Supreme Court overturned the ruling which led to a second trial.
