On May 2, 2023, defendant Jason Miller, age 42, pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter for the April 15, 2021, killing of Kiera Foley, age 32, in Eureka. The defendant also pled guilty to assault with a firearm on a second victim, and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury on a third victim.

After entering his plea, the defendant met with the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Criminal Investigations Division to provide information about the location of Ms. Foley’s remains. In collaboration with the Eureka Police Department, operations were conducted to recover Ms. Foley’s remains at a location on the outskirts of Eureka. The recovery was completed on May 10.  

Ms. Foley’s family has been notified and will soon be provided with the opportunity to lay her to rest.

The Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office would like to give thanks and recognition to our local Humboldt County K-9 search and rescue dog teams; the Cal Poly Humboldt Anthropology Department; the CA Department of Justice; and the Eureka Police Department, for their assistance with this recovery. 

On August 24, Miller is expected to be sentenced, pursuant to agreement, to serve 25 years in prison.
