Two women sentenced for roles in Officer Miktarian murder

Published:

Twinsburg -- For their roles in the murder of Officer Joshua Miktarian in July 2008, Danielle Roberson and Bridget Robinson were sentenced to two years probation each, with a suspended one-year jail sentence for Robinson, and six month house arrest and six months suspended jail time for Roberson.

Both were charged $1,000 in fines and court costs by Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Daniel Gaul Feb. 6.

These were the maximum sentences allowed by the Ohio Revised Code for the crimes to which each pleaded.

Roberson, 27, and Robinson, 37, both faced charges of obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence following the July 13, 2008, murder of Twinsburg Police Officer Joshua Miktarian by Ashford Thompson, Roberson's former boyfriend and Robinson's brother.

The two women attempted to shelter Thompson after the murder, hiding the murder weapon and trying to remove his handcuffs. As well, police say Roberson got out of the car the night of the murder, further distracting Miktarian and allowing Thompson to reach for his gun.

Thompson is currently on Death Row at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution.
