Michael Denoyer has to be one of the bravest guys around, or one of the dumbest. Denoyer plans to marry Sharee Miller, a Michigan woman who is serving a life sentence for convincing an ex-cop that she met online to kill her third husband. Now, Michael Denoyer plans to be husband No. 4.

According to About.com Weird News Guide Buck Wolf, in his article, "Another Marriage for Husband Killer," Denoyer first saw Miller on an episode of "Snapped" on the Oxygen Channel.

It was something about her eyes, Denoyer said.

Miller, 36, was convicted in 2000 of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and second-degree murder for the November 1999 shooting death of her husband, Bruce Miller. Evidence revealed that Miller met ex-policeman Jerry L. Cassaday on the Internet, had an affair with him, and convinced him to kill her husband, who was allegedly abusing her.

Killed an Innocent Man

Prosecutors said when Cassaday discovered he had killed an innocent man, he committed suicide. Cassaday left behind enough information to convict Sharee Miller at trial.

The case has been the topic of a best-selling book and a television movie. It has also been the subject for several real-crime television shows, including the one Denoyer saw.

Perhaps Denoyer, 56, is not all that brave after all. Miller will not be eligible for parole until the year 2055, when he would be 103 and she would be 83.

I’m with Paula! I agree with everything she said. This Sharee Miller is a scumbag manipulative bitch that should have been locked up and the key thrown away! I feel for the man she did this too and for her husband. Its okay though. She’ll face a higher judge one day.

I agree!!! This guy is getting conned just like all the others. She shows no remorse or concern for anyone but herself and should rot in prison next to her butt buddy Bertha.

Look at his picture and see how ugly he is. He couldn’t get a woman on the outside, not even sharee herself if she were free.

If any of you had any sence at all you would get the fact before you spoke. The media doesn’t always tell the truth. If you were not so cheap you could go on line and get the facts for yourself and see just how much the media lies. However I understand how important it is for some people to talk about other people, then they do not have to look at their selves. Well, I went and found out the facts, not what the media says. Sharee Miller is not married, like they have reported and they do not have the evidence that they say they do. Get the breifs off line for yourself, then come on here and debate, the facts!

(6) anonymous says:

Michael Denoyer has heard all the negative remarks from not only “strangers” online, but he’s heard it from his own friends and family too. Michael Denoyer is my uncle. I really don’t appreciate anyone saying he’s so ugly he can’t do better. He has had his fair share of broken marriages and its not fair for anyone to critisize based on information you “found” or “heard” from the internet. He has told all of us that “there was something in her eyes” and we have all watched the “snapped” episode as well as the “ID” episode and we can’t see what he sees. He swears up and down she is innocent. I don’t believe its my business why he “chose” her but he did and its not up to me to decide if its right or wrong. People can say what they want to him or about him but it wont change his mind. It is very disrespectful to talk about him on a blog site such as this one.

(7) Tina Andersona says:

to Anonymous, I’m with you. I don’t like this woman and think its all true about her but your Uncle should not be maligned. In fact I pray that he’s right and at least he is safe and happy but not her. Anyway, not all of us feel this way about your Uncle and it’s really stupid for others to judge him.

October 28, 2009 at 3:15 pm
(8) PUWISE says:

Easy for you to say about Mr. Denoyer. His family member wasn’t murdered and doesn’t have to live with the grief. You might feel differently if Ms. Miller decides to get rid of him too.

She is guilty and I know it. I knew jerry my whole life and he would never of done this if he didnt think she was in danger! If someone else wants to marry her- go ahead it is your funeral, if she could get your money!! She is a worthless waste of space! I hope she rots in jail for ever she dosent deserve to see the light of day ever agian. If it was not for her my uncle would still be alive!!!!!

Didn’t she get a new trial?

The last thing I’d heard she got a new trial and was out on bail awaiting it?

(11) Cheri says:

The media doesn’t always tell the truth? Tonya, what news organizations are you talking about, and what would be their motivation for lying? Sharee Miller isn’t a celebrity who is being unfairly beaten down. And what internet sources are you referring to? Why would you think an “internet source” would be more truthful than established media? I can sue a local television station for slander, but the same cannot be said for some elusive internet source. I am sick and tired of people like you who just don’t have a clue. What’s your point anyway? That Sharee Miller is innocent?! There is overwhelming POLICE evidence to the contrary.

“He has had his fair share of broken marriages”

So why doesn’t he give up?

Instead he hooks up with a murderess? Not too bright, is he?

jody, you have my condolences. Your uncle did not deserve what happened to him. He was used by a predator.

(15) Jodi Cassaday says:

Thank you Terri, and yes, she keeps appealing her trial. She actually got a parol hearing, but a lot of my family showed up., and spoke on behave of my uncle jerry. He was actually the youngest of 5 boys. my father is the one who did all the interviews for dateline, nbc news, and well ever one else. Did you know it actually took them three days to find his body? He lived in the basement of my cousins house in Odessa, Mo. and my cousin is the one that found him. He is a former police office of Cass County and discovered corruption (however you spell it) and they managed to destroy his life, before the whole town was fired., and they were fired two. Now there is a whole new police line in Cass County, Thanks Uncle Jerry. He left behind, three boys and an ex wife. who in a letter he left when he died, stated that he wished he would have never of left her.

Tonya – were you running a little late for your shift at McDonalds? asking us to get the facts on the case, and have some ‘sence’ (among other spelling errors)? no time to check to do a spell-check, huh?

what facts ‘off-line’ are we supposed to gather about this tawdry case, before we join the debate? this woman falls into the rapidly-growing social segment known as the ‘urban killer’ (male or female), those who have pleasant families and live in nice neighborhoods, but decide to kill a family member for thrills, money, sex, freedom, to relieve boredom, whatever…

anyway, I read where the woman was released via a favorable appeal judgement – she probably blew off the 56 year old for better prospects.

This woman is no different from any woman. The are all cons in their own way

(18) kari says:

To John: not all women are cons. This woman was married and had an affair with a man over the internet. Sent him an ultrasound picture from years before claiming it was his baby. I feel sorry for everyone involved but not her. She took an innocent man’s life and caused another one to commit suicide because he felt he loves her enough and that she was in danger.

March 31, 2012 at 5:52 pm
(19) aboutFACTs says:

Miller is free out on bond awaiting a new trial. The suicide note will not be introduced in this new trial because her accuser cannot be cross examine-violating her constitutional right to face her accuser. This makes everything-all the incriminating evidence he left behind -her web of master manipulation all here say. She will most likely remain free or if convicted on a lesser charge receive credit for the time she has served. For your uncle’s sake and the sake of all the other lonely hearts of Michigan I hope she’s smart enough to have profited significantly off this crime, otherwise she WILL be looking for money soon enough. Say what you will against or in her favor but the facts don’t lie sociopaths almost never abandon their ways. It is a mental defect that is easily adapted to camouflage thier behaviors within regular
society. Miller will do whatever it takes to settle in society away from scruity, the men that come across her beautiful eyes are pawns in her game. Lets not forget he is husband number 4.

(20) Kats says:

Hah, Tonya… Did you choose that name because it’s the name of the character meant to depict Sharee in the tv movie based on this case? It’s almost like you are Sharee Miller and thought that’d be a good alias. Who else could be dumb enough to say such things as you have said? Alas, you probably are not her. I’ve been online long enough to know there are idiots and unsavory people all over the internet. I wish Jerry knew the internet was full of such people. He’d never have been gullible enough to think killing a man was the only solulution for him being,–what he ultimately learned was erroneous–a batterer. Did this former cop think that her leaving and obtaining a restraining order was the smarter choice? I wish we could ask him what he was thinking. But of course we can’t. And of course it’s because of that Sharee’s conviction was overturned, and the inability to cross examine him will probably keep her free. Even criminals have 6 Amendment rights. “Tonya” can rejoice!

How is Sharee Miller out of Prison?? Today is Aug. 9,2012…I came across a facebook page called (The comedyshop)…And there she is!!! With her new grandchild and not in prison garb!!!
Bruce & Jerry’s grandchildren will never have their photo taken with their grandfathers or even get to meet them!! How is this Flint MI. woman free..???.When she was not eligible for parole until 2055???

Im sorry jodi for your loss and she is guilty and should stay in jail for the rest of her life she is nasty and vindictive and mulnipulitive ,but at the same time your uncle killed a man as well!!! He was a cop and he knew right from wrong and he still did wrong!!!

October 11, 2012 at 3:56 am
(23) moother23 says:

Im sorry to you jodi for you loss and i agree she is a nasty mulnipulative person and deserves to rot in prison but at the same time your uncle killed a person reason or no reason he is just as guilty as she is. He was a cop and he knew right from wrong and he still did wrong!!!

(24) Janie says:

First of all, I think that Sharee Miller along with every other convicted murderer should be executed. Our country is trillions of dollars in debt and it costs way too much to feed clothe house and give medical attention and educations to these people. They will never be worth squat to society. Hang them and re-use the rope. Save billions of taxpayers money. Secondly Jodi I’m sorry for your family’s loss. There’s. a special place in hell for the likes of Sharee Miller.

(25) Addy says:

You people seriously have no lives . What do you get out of trashing someone that you know nothing about, She is human just like the rest of us. And unless you know her personally I feel you have no room for judgment. Of course everyone has the right to speak there opinion but some of you take it to far. To wish death upon someone is just ridiculous. Not only was Bruce Miller’s family hurt so was Sharee Millers family. She does have children that can read this and be very hurt by some of the comments you people put. I seriously am sickened by how much hatred people can have towards others they do not even know. I love my Mother and who she has become today and I will forever be praying for her freedom again.

(26) Kellbell143 says:

There’s a huge difference between murdering someone and plotting to kill someone, that is why the charges are different. It’s sad that someone can be manipulated like Jerry was, he did know the law, but love is a strong hold for some people and you would like to believe the one you love. I find it awful that someone would lie about getting beaten because there are so many women and men this happens to, not to mention lying about pregnancy, when it’s suppose to be a happy time. I feel for all the families this has hurt and I hope justice is served the way it should be.

I used to work with Jerry at the Cass County SD. He was a scumbag. He got what he deserved. I know this well.

(28) Janie says:

First, Addy, learn the correct usage of there and their. Secondly, we are wishing JUSTICE to b served and if that’s death then so be it. It’s not like society would be at a loss if sharee miller were to die. It would b a gain since it would save millions of taxpayer dollars to not have to support her anymore.

March 20, 2013 at 11:56 pm
(29) Janie says:

By the way, Addy, if the shoe were on the other foot and it was bruce who lied and manipulated an internet fling into killing sharee (apparently your mother), would u be defending him and praying for his freedom? I highly doubt it. I am deeply sorryfor you to have that monster for a parent. I hope and pray that someday you will see her for what she is.

I watch Sharee Miller’s story on Deadly Women. It’s depressing. That bitch should remain in prison… permanently and never ever be released.
I have sympathy for that guy Jerry. Sharee Miller is nothin’ more than a master manipulator.

Is this a spelling contest? I don’t think sooo . And my mother is NOT a monster. Do you know her personally? I highly doubt you do.

(33) Bern says:

Jodi, my heart goes out to you and your family. I hope that your uncle is in a better place and is forgiven for his choices. I am well versed on this incident, though I am not a member of either family. If I were on a jury, at any of her trials, I would assuredly vote “guilty”. I know that Sharee likes to claim that she was convicted on her “sexual adventures”, but her sexual exploits have nothing to do with the reasons that I was convinced of her guilt. Internet porn is a very common thing, it is part of life in our current times, if we decided that any person engaging in internet sex was a murderer, we would not have a massive enough judicial system to try them!! Sorry Sharee, most of us are a little more sophisticated than that! Until she can admit her involvement, I doubt that there is any hope for her as a human being. She will remain in all of our minds and in reality a worthless person.

(34) Janie says:

No I dont know your mother, by the grace of God. If she’s not a monster, then what is she? Maybe pathological liar, murderer?.?.? If u cant see where she’s done something terribly wrong, may God help you to get the help that you need before you wind up in a cell right along with her. I like money myself but I put myself through 8yrs of college and am earning my way through life, not lying and manipulating anyone into killing my husband for it. She deserves to be punished for what she’s done. Unfortunately not through the death penalty.

April 2, 2013 at 10:56 pm
(35) Janie says:

You may not think your mother is a monster, but she is. I am thankful that I dont know her. If you can’t see where she’s done something horrible and wrong, then I hope you get the help that you obviously need before you wind up in a cell right along with her. You never answered the question, either. If Bruce had manipulated an internet fling into killing your mother would you be praying for him? I like money too, but I put myself through 8 yrs of college and am earning my money, not manipulating someone into killing my husband for his life insurance. That’s called an “honest living”, something your mother doesn’t know about nor does she possess the ability to teach her children about. I just hope you don’t end up like her since you fail to see where she’s done wrong and deserves to be punished. Unfortunately without the death penalty, her punishment is costing innocent taxpayers.

(36) Tony says:

I agree. People need to realize more tax money goes to corrections than for education every year. That’s a load of crap that we’d rather pay for inmates to have air conditioning, cable tv, and 3 meals a day than for our kid’s educational needs. Where there’s irrefutable evidence of guilt there should be immediate executions carried out. That is also more of a deterrent for crimes like that of Sharee Miller, who also deserves to pay for her crime.

April 18, 2013 at 11:32 pm
(37) Janie says:

Thank you so much Tony! It’s nice to see that not only are you absolutely right about funding for corrections vs funding for our future generation’s education, you also have the common sense idea on how to cut back on the expense. Too bad more voters dont feel,that way. It would be nice to see capital pynishment legalized & carried out in every state. It also would be more of a deterrent to crime. We badly need it. Just look at this degenerate Sharee Miller. She’s one of many who does not deserve to live & breathe our oxygen.

I too worked with Jerry years ago at the Cass County Sheriff Dept. He was not a scumbag. He was someone who truly loved his job, I can not imagine what happened to make him do what he did. Not the man I knew. Not the man I worked with and respected for his loyalty to the job and to the law. My heart breaks for Barbara and his children.

Addy you are right Sharee Miller is not a monster. Charles Manson,
Sirhan Sirhan and James Earl Ray amount others are monster. Not saying what Sharee was so very wrong and beating up Jerry what,s the point.
One is dead and Is locked up. People let’s go. I have felt so guilty because
Of me the case was in the media again and Bruce Millers family has to relive this night made. Let’s give the Miller a break from this
