FROM THE COURTHOUSE

• Centralia murder defendant Weston G. Miller pleaded guilty yesterday to four firearms charges to “clear up some issues” before his upcoming trial in the death of 43-year-old David Wayne Carson, according to Miller’s attorney. Miller, 30, remains charged with first-degree murder. His trial is scheduled in Lewis County Superior Court for the week of April 15. On March 13 of last year, Miller allegedly used a 9 mm pistol to shoot his house guest, who died at the scene. When detectives searched his home on B Street, they found a silencer, a laser site for a gun, a bullet-proof vest, a Walter 9 mm pistol, a Walter .22 caliber pistol, a Rohm revolver, a MAC-10 semi-automatic and a Winchester model 275 .22 caliber long rifle, according to charging documents. He is prohibited from owning firearms because of conviction two years earlier for  domestic fourth-degree assault. Prosecutors dropped one of the gun charges because police were afraid to test fire one of the guns in order to prove it was functional. In a very brief hearing yesterday afternoon, Miller pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. The standard sentencing range for the offense is one to three months in jail. Neither attorney nor the judge made any mention of when he would be sentenced.

UPDATE FROM THE COURTHOUSE

• Murder defendant Weston G. Miller is scheduled for a change of plea this coming Wednesday, not for the murder count but for the second-degree unlawful possession of firearms charges which were filed at the same time after his house guest was fatally shot a year ago in his Centralia home. Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecutor Brad Meagher said yesterday it was at the request of Miller and Miller’s attorney and he presumed it was for “strategic” reasons. Miller’s trial for first-degree murder in the death of 43-year-old David Wayne Carson is still on the calendar for the week of April 15. He was initially charged with five counts of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm but one of those has been dropped by prosecutors. Meagher said a gun has to actually be a functioning firearm but police were afraid to test fire it.

AUTHORITIES POINT TO WALL HEATER IN COUNTY SHOP FIRE

• The fire that destroyed the Lewis County road department shop east of Glenoma on Friday night appears to have originated with a 10-15-year-old Cadet heater. Whether it malfunctioned, there was an electrical issue or perhaps over time dried out the wood behind it isn’t yet known, according to Paulette Young who is the risk and safety administrator for the county. Young described the heater as one that was installed in the wall, set at a certain temperature and generally left turned on. The large metal building and its contents are a total loss, she said. Among the items destroyed were four 12-yard dump trucks, two front-end loaders, other heavy equipment, trucks and smaller tools, according to Young. The new replacement value for the equipment alone would be around $2 million, Lewis County public works director and county engineer Tim Elsea said today. Elsea said a temporary office has been set up on the site, with power getting hooked up to it today. “It’s definitely a tragedy, without a doubt,” Elsea said. “Seeing those guys go through it is very hard.” About nine road department employees begin and end their workdays at the site, where their tools were stored, he said. The heater was originally put in  a room with a well head, but since was used to keep sandbags dry, according to Young. Elsea said he’s asked supervisors to go out and make sure they don’t have those types of heaters installed in any of the other four similar shops around the county. Elsea said he didn’t know when the last time was the county fire marshal inspected the building. They won’t know the final cost of the fire until after they meet with their insurers next week.
