A Houston man who killed two men and injured a third man in separate shootings beginning in 2014 was sentenced to 49 years in prison for each case in a plea agreement this week, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.


“This was a crime spree that began before Hurricane Harvey and the pandemic, but our prosecutors stuck with it and got justice for the victims and their families,” Ogg said. “Our hearts go out to all the people that this man hurt time after time with senseless violence.”


Jeremy Wayne Miller, 32, pleaded guilty to two murder charges and an aggravated assault charge for a nonfatal shooting. He was sentenced to 49 years in all three cases. Those sentences will run concurrently.


Miller’s first murder was of his friend, 40-year-old Tremayne Richardson, on July 5, 2014. Miller then fled to Atlanta. The motive for the shooting remains unknown.


He later returned to Houston and shot another man several times. That man survived and was able to identify Miller.


Miller was then arrested. He was charged with murder in the first shooting and aggravated assault in the second shooting. Miller was then released on bond.


Months later, Miller fatally shot 55-year-old security guard Daniel Arp, who was on patrol at a Hobby-area apartment complex on July 15, 2015.


Earlier this week, Miller pleaded guilty in all three shootings on the eve of trial. Family members of Arp were in court for the plea deal. On Thursday, Richardson’s family members gave victim impact statements in court.


“He was a happy person, the joy of the family,” said Richardson’s mother, Betty Jones. “He didn’t get to see his kids grow up or graduate.”


Assistant District Attorney Casey Goodman, a chief prosecutor who handled the case, said the plea agreement was the appropriate resolution.


“After a long wait, both families can now have the closure they deserve,” he said.


Goodman prosecuted the case with ADA Paula Hartman, a division chief in the Trial Bureau.
