Plymouth District Court: Domestic assault charge against Quincy police capt. dismissed

At the request of Plymouth County prosecutors, a domestic assault charge against veteran Quincy police Captain Michael Miller has been dismissed.

Miller was accused of striking his wife with the door to her Plymouth apartment when he went to pick-up their five-year-old daughter for a scheduled visit.

Assistant District Attorney Bridget Norton Middleton, who’s a spokesperson for the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office, said Thursday there wasn’t sufficient evidence to proceed with the case after Miller’s estranged, pregnant wife claimed her martial privilege and refused to testify.

Miller was placed on paid administrative leave from the Quincy Police Department when he was charged two weeks ago but is expected to return to his captain duties.
