February 3rd, 2008, 05:57 PM
A recently paroled burglar was charged today with first-degree murder in the rape and slaying of former Post-Dispatch writer and editor Nancy Miller in her home in Chesterfield.
Walters, 27, also was charged with armed criminal action, first-degree burglary and rape in warrants filed today. He was held without bond in the county Justice Center in Clayton.
McCulloch did not describe how Walters got into Millerís home except to say it was "unlawfully." He said the suspect had been released from a Missouri prison about 10 days ago.

Statements from a prior victim of Walters
In the summer of 2000, Brian M. Walters walked past her bedroom window and stared her down. "He just continued to glare at me," she recalled Monday.
Weeks later, someone slit a screen while she and her two roommates were away from their apartment.
That black eye in his booking photo? Apparently Miller fighting back, police said.
Columnist who worked with victim for 30 years weighs in
So we'll soon know more, and that's all to the good, but what will we really learn other than the hard truth that sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to things, which is something Nancy used to write about with good humor and grace.
And his interview with the asswaffle's parents
The thought had not occurred to her that he might be the murderer. He had been a troubled kid, and then a troubled young man, but it was mostly stealing, nickel and dime stuff, the kind of trouble a young man could put behind him. "When I told him about the murder, he said, 'I swear to you, I had nothing to do with it,'" Alonda said. "I believed him."

mf'er he done 3 of a seven year sentence and pulled this crap not what i would call long enough to not be able to live on the outside... He had parents that supported him allowed him to live with them a chance to start his life over.
This remarkable woman deserved so much more and seems to have so much to give to others, what a horrible way to go out... my sympathy to her family friends neighbors and co-workers .... what a nice neighborhood and community - everyone is numb and in shock this kind of thing don't happen there.
Thanks to sharing this elles

This is why I want the elimination of parole, the lengthening of sentences for victim-having crimes, and much harsher prison climates.

It's coming out now that Brian Walters had sex charges filed against him in Charlotte, NC, several years ago, but it was not on his record because he was allowed to plead out.
The charges were for the sexual assault,kidnapping and robbery of a 16 year old girl(he would've been 20-21 at the time). He fled the area to St. Louis, and was extradited back to NC to face these charges.
While in custody, he denied the rape charges but admitted to "slapping her around". Authorities had trouble finding evidence of anything so they offered him a deal,and he did 120 days and did not have to register as a sex offender.
He came back to Mo,was incarcerated twice on burglary charges,and was released 10 days before the brutal rape and murder of Nancy Miller.
I hope he still has those black eyes Nancy gave him.
