Man sentenced to 48 years in prison for Wheat Ridge deadly stabbing

The First Judicial District Court has sentenced a man to 48 years in prison for a deadly stabbing in Wheat Ridge.

In September 2021, a Jefferson County jury found Clinton Eugene Priest, 54, guilty of second-degree murder and first-degree assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury in the death of Robert Miller, 32.

According to the arrest affidavit, on Sept. 23, 2020, Priest’s son, Clinton Priest, 29, called Wheat Ridge Police because his father returned home from the bar with blood on his clothing and body.

Within minutes, police responded to a call for a man found bleeding in the parking lot of the Rambling Rose bar on West 44th Avenue. The victim, later identified as Miller, was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be stab wounds. He died a short time later.
