Arriving officers were met by Claire E. Miller F/14 who directed them to a bedroom where they found Helen M. Miller F/19 with a stab wound in her neck.

Information obtained so far determined that the incident happened during the overnight hours when the girls’ parents were asleep. Claire Miller was taken into custody at the scene. The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office is assisting with the investigation and approved charging Claire Miller with Criminal Homicide. Miller will be arraigned by Magisterial District Judge David Miller. It is expected that Miller will be transported to Lancaster County Prison after arraignment on the charge of Homicide. Anyone charged with homicide in Pennsylvania is not eligible for bail.”
She is being held in Lancaster County Prison, and is due back in court on March 26th.
