Charges Filed In Stabbing Death In Wheat Ridge

Clinton Priest

Clinton Eugene Priest, 53, DOB: 2-26-67, appeared today in Jefferson County District Court where he was advised that he has been charged with multiple charges, including Second Degree Murder in the stabbing death of 32-year-old Robert Miller.  Priest was charged with Second Degree Murder (F2); four counts of Possession of a Weapon by a Previous Offender (F6); and two violent crime counts. 

On September 23, 2020 Wheat Ridge police were called to 4705 Routt Street by 29-year-old Clinton Priest. According to the arrest affidavit, he told police that his father, 53-year-old Clinton Priest, had just returned home from a bar and had blood on his clothing and his body. Minutes later, police were dispatched to the Rambling Rose at 10080 West 44th Avenue on a report of a man down and bleeding in the parking lot. They found Robert Miller on the ground. He appeared to be suffering from stab wounds. Miller was transported to a hospital but died a short time later.

Clinton Priest, 53, is being held on $500,000 bond at the Jefferson County jail. He is due back in court on October 21, 2020 for preliminary hearing.


The filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual has committed a crime(s).  A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. See Colo. RPC 3.6
