Physician’s arraignment postponed

An arraignment for a Craig doctor who faces three felony charges stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident will be postponed until later this month.

Jerald Young, a lawyer representing Dr. Joel Miller said the defense was waiting for the written results of an investigation into the case before proceeding with the hearing.

Miller, 47, was charged with two felony counts of second degree assault and menacing with a real or simulated weapon in connection to an alleged domestic violence dispute last January. Miller is facing another felony charge for a bond violation in connection with the case.

“We have concluded the majority of the investigation, but we’re waiting for the written report,” Young said in Moffat County District Court on Monday. “Then, we want to discuss it with Ms. Fitch.”

Amy Fitch is the Chief Deputy District Attorney for Moffat County’s 14th Judicial District.

An arraignment in the case was postponed to May 24.
