Three people have been arrested and charged in last week’s shocking abduction and murder of Steven Miller in Conception Bay South, N.L. Paul Connolloy, a 35-year-old man from St. John’s with an extensive criminal record, was one of the three men charged with first-degree murder, forcible confinement, robbery and arson. The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said in a statement that a 19-year-old man from Paradise, and a 26-year-old from St. John’s were also charged.

Miller’s body was discovered in a driveway in the Bayview Heights neighbourhood of C.B.S. shortly after 8 a.m. on July 30 with multiple stab wounds.  Police say the 25-year-old was violently abducted from his home by three masked intruders earlier that morning a few kilometres from where his body was found.

Investigators believe the intruders then set the house ablaze

Sources have told CBC News that Conolloy was the 35-year-old man who was found unconscious on Trails End Drive in Paradise at 5 a.m. on July 30, just one hour after police responded to Miller’s C.B.S. home.

Earlier in the week, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary told reporters they weren’t ruling out a link between that attack and the abduction of Steven Miller.

A service will be held Friday morning for Miller at a chapel in St. John’s. According to his obituary, he is survived by his parents, a brother, grandparents and other relations.
