Scott Raymond Dozier was scheduled to be executed at 8 pm PST, on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, at the Ely State Prison in Ely, Nevada. His execution has been stayed. Forty-seven-year-old Scott is convicted of the murder of 22-year-old Jeremiah Miller on April 18, 2002, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Scott has spent the last ten years on Nevada’s death row.
In 2001, Scott Dozier was a methamphetamine dealer. Dozier came to believe that 27-year-old Jasen Green was going to expose his operation. Dozier shot Jasen and chopped his body into pieces before burying him in an Arizona.
In April of 2002, Dozier was in need of money and convinced an associate, 22-year-old Jeremiah Miller to come to Las Vegas, with cash, for a large purchase of ephedrine, a key ingredient in the making of methamphetamine. Dozier and Miller met on April 18, 2002, inside a motel on the Las Vegas Strip. Miller also brought along a suitcase containing $12,000 in cash.
Upon arrival, Dozier killed Miller before cutting his body into pieces and disposing of them. Dozier then went on a spending spree. One year later, Miller’s torso, chopped in two, was found by a maintenance worker. His head, arms, and legs were never recovered.
Dozier was arrested on June 25, 2002, in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2005, Dozier was sentenced to 22 years in prison for the murder of Jasen Green. In October of 2007, Dozier was sentenced to death in Nevada for the robbery and murder of Jeremiah Miller.
