Married Father Murders Teen-Aged Baby Sitter – Marriage and Parenting Does Not Make People More Loving, Godly, Mature, or Responsible

OGDEN, UTAH – Opening statements began Wednesday in the trial of a Utah man who authorities say injected his 16-year-old baby sitter with a fatal dose of heroin and methamphetamine, then took his infant daughter along when he and his wife dumped the teen’s body near a river.
Prosecutors say Eric Millerberg, 38, of North Ogden, had a drug-fueled, sexual relationship with Alexis Rasmussen that led to the girl’s death in 2011.
Millerberg has pleaded not guilty to felony child abuse homicide.
His wife, Dea Millerberg, is expected to testify against him this week. She says her husband gave Rasmussen the fatal mix of drugs.
Dea Millerberg has been charged with desecration of a dead body and is awaiting trial. She filed for divorce in 2012, according to court records.
