Cowlitz County, Washington – A 10 year old child called 9-1-1 early today to report his dad had shot his mom. Deputies responded to the home on Niemi Road near Longview. They found 27 year old Chante Milian with a gunshot wound in the back. She’s been taken to a Portland hospital for treatment. They found the body of her estranged husband, 30 year old Miguel Milian, in a room upstairs.
Chief Criminal Deputy Charlie Rosenzweig says three or four children were inside the home and were not hurt. They’re now staying with a relative. He says “we just can’t say yet what was the cause of the father’s death.”
He says deputies had responded to a domestic violence call at the home a few months ago and that call ended with the father’s arrest. Rosenzweig says the wife had recently moved out, but had stopped by the home last night.
