He was charged with murdering the two in January 2004, about a week before he was due to be released from Avenal State Prison in central California. The Laskys, who had been married nearly 53 years, had just returned from a vacation cruise when they were killed. Investigators said Miner, and possibly two other people, entered the couple’s home in the 7200 block of Pomelo Drive after they saw Bertha Lasky leave to go shopping. William Lasky was confronted at knifepoint as the intruders ransacked the home, and his wife was attacked when she returned home some time later. Lasky was stabbed three times in the chest and his wife’s throat was slit, authorities said. Firefighters discovered the victims dead in their master bedroom when they responded to what they believed was a residential fire.
