Wake D.A. Files Brief In Arsenic Poisoning Case

Posted October 1, 2002

— Wake County District Attorney Colon Willoughby hopes North Carolina Supreme Court justices will help solve the Eric Miller arsenic poisoning case.

The district attorney filed an 89-page brief asking justices to force attorney Richard Gammon to disclose any information about the UNC researcher's death in 2000.

Gammon represented Derril Willard, a man detectives believe played a role in Miller's poisoning.

Willard killed himself shortly after police searched his house. Investigators said Willard had a romantic relationship with Eric Miller's wife, Ann.

So far, no arrests have been made in the case.
