Texas sex offender arrested again — for affair with jailer

FORT WORTH — Wesley Wayne Miller, one of Texas' most notorious sexual predators and killers, has been arrested again.

Miller is accused of having a secret romantic relationship with a female Tarrant County jailer while in custody, which is a violation of his civil commitment order, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

In 2006, Miller, a registered sex offender, became Texas' first convicted killer to be committed under the state's Sexually Violent Predator Program. He was forbidden to have contact with unapproved people or with potential victims.

"I'm not surprised that it happened, but pleased that he was where he was and that nobody got hurt. The system worked," said Rona Stratton Smith, whose sister Retha Stratton was fatally stabbed by Miller in 1982 after she rejected his sexual advances. "You can't predict a psychopath."

Officials said Miller, 45, was formally arrested Tuesday night at the Cold Springs Jail, where he was required to live under the terms of his civil commitment order because he has been deemed a sexually violent predator who poses a continuing threat to society.
