The Altamont man found guilty last week in Effingham County of felony counts including drug induced homicide has been sentenced in Fayette County to prison time.

23-year-old Jay Miller Monday admitted to violating his Fayette County probation on a burglary count.  Judge Marc Kelly sentenced Miller to six years in prison. The prison term will run concurrent with any previous prison terms. Miller was placed on probation in 2012 and was arrested on an alleged violation of the probation last fall.

Miller faces anywhere from 15 to 30 years in prison on the drug induced homicide count from Effingham County, as well as possible prison time on a count of delivery of controlled substance. He is due to be sentenced July 31. In addition to the new sentence from Fayette County, Miller earlier pleaded guilty in Effingham County to a count of possession of controlled substance, for which he received a five-year prison term.
