Man charged in killing of DMC nurse

A Michigan man has been charged in connection with the carjacking and murder of his ex-girlfriend and Detroit Medical Center nurse, Patrice Wilson, the Detroit Free Press reported June 1.

Prosecutors allege Jamere Mykel Miller waited in disguise for Ms. Wilson to get off work the morning of May 13. Once Ms. Wilson entered her car in the parking lot at Detroit Receiving Hospital, Mr. Miller allegedly got into the passenger seat and shot her several times before fleeing with the car. Her body was found in the deserted vehicle later that day. Ms. Wilson and Mr. Miller were reportedly ending their relationship at the time of her death. 

Mr. Miller turned himself in May 14 and has been charged with first-degree murder, felony murder, carjacking, armed robbery, felony possession of a firearm and five counts of felony firearm, according to the report. He pleaded not guilty and is being held without bond. 

A Detroit Medical Center spokesperson released the following statement after Ms. Wilson's death:

"It is with deep sadness that we offer heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and DMC colleagues of cherished nurse leader Patrice Wilson, as well as Patrice’s mother, another dedicated DMC team member. Patrice was not just a co-worker but a loving friend to many at the DMC. Grief counseling is available for all staff at our Adult Central Campus hospitals."
