RIVERSIDE, CALIF. — A former Marine is set to be sentenced for killing a colleague and his wife in their Southern California home in 2008.

Jurors have recommended the death penalty for 25-year-old Tyrone Miller, one of three former Marines convicted of shooting Sgt. Jan Pietrzak and his wife Quiana Jenkins-Pietrzak in October 2008.

Miller is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Riverside.

Prosecutors say the men went to Pietrzak’s house to rob him and that Pietrzak was assaulted and his wife sexually assaulted before they were killed.

Miller testified he was upset because Pietrzak told him he would not be promoted. He said he fought with Pietrzak but did not see who shot him.

Two other men are scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 16. A fourth man is being tried separately.
