By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - A man charged with murdering a Mayfield woman more than four years ago has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. 

Due to safety guidelines implemented to combat COVID-19, Monday's sentencing hearing for Ezell Miller was conducted via Zoom. On Feb. 7, a Graves County jury unanimously found Miller guilty of the murder of Lauren Alexander, along with several other felonies.

Miller kicked in the front door and shot Alexander inside her West Hale Street home on Feb. 28, 2016. He reportedly waited about 45 minutes to call 911. Alexander was taken to Jackson Purchase Medical Center, then to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, TN where she passed away the next day.

Miller was charged with murder, 1st degree burglary, tampering with physical evidence, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and 1st degree wanton endangerment.
