ROCHESTER, N.Y.(WHEC) — A 36-year-old Rochester man is facing charges in the shooting death of a woman on Fourth Street.

Rochester Police charged Marzell Miller with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon. 


Miller, a parolee who had been on the run for nearly two months, was picked up on Tuesday, Oct. 15 on Third Street. He had previously been out on parole for attempted assault. In August, police say Miller ran away from supervision and described him as "armed and dangerous."

Around the same time in August, 26-year-old Shaniece Taylor was shot and killed inside a home on Fourth Street.

Taylor's family said she was dating Miller before the shooting. Relatives told News10NBC they believed he may know something about her death.

"He was the last person to see her," Michelle Floyd, Taylor's aunt said. "We just want to know what happened. If he didn't do it, just tell us...give us some type of insight into what happened to my niece, my brother's child, my sister's child. Give us some insight."

Miller will be arraigned on these charges on Tuesday.
