A former police chief in Onslow County is facing a murder charge for allegedly shooting a marine almost 36 years ago. 57 year-old George Hayden was charged with killing marine Sgt. William Miller. Miller was found shot to death on September 16, 1972, after returning from a deployment. Investigators reports show that Hayden had moved into Miller's mobile home, and that Hayden later left with Miller's wife. The sheriff's office said a cold case report in a local newspaper inspired a key witness to come forward.
