A 36-year-old man in Michigan who donned a disguise to abduct his girlfriend outside the hospital where she worked as a nurse before killing her because she’d told him she wanted to end their relationship will spend more than three decades behind bars.

Wayne County Judge Kevin Cox on Tuesday ordered Jamere Miller to serve a sentence of 35 to 60 years in a state correctional facility for the kidnapping and killing of 29-year-old Patrice Wilson, court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Miller reached a deal with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office last month and pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree murder. In exchange for agreeing to plead to Wilson’s slaying, prosecutors dropped multiple other charges, including first-degree murder, felony murder, robbery, and firearms offenses.

The Detroit Police Department previously said Wilson had finished an overnight nursing shift at Detroit Receiving Hospital early on May 13 and was entering her car when an armed Miller — seen “wearing a blonde wig” and a hat and glasses — abducted her. Miller got into the car with her and forced her into the passenger seat.

Her body was found in the trunk of her car. She had been shot to death.

Judge Cox said Miller’s actions amounted to the “senseless, violent killing” of someone beloved by her family and friends, The Detroit News reported.
