Forty-six-year-old Kenneth Miller, of Stuarts Draft, Va., is facing a charge of helping Lisa Miller flee the United States to avoid having to turn over custody of her now-10-year-old daughter to Janet Jenkins of Fair Haven. The two Millers are not related.
Prosecutors say in September 2009 Miller drove Lisa Miller and her daughter Isabella from Virginia to Buffalo, N.Y. where the mother and daughter then flew to Central America.
Jury selection is set for Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Burlington.
Opening statements are expected Wednesday.
