Pa. road named for slain trooper

HARRISBURG — A section of state road in Northeastern Pennsylvania has been named in honor of a state trooper who was killed in the line of duty earlier this year.

A bill that named a portion of Route 611 in Monroe County the Trooper Joshua D. Miller Memorial Highway was signed into law by Gov. Ed Rendell on Tuesday.

Miller was shot and killed in June after a 40-mile chase of an armed man. Daniel Autenrieth also seriously wounded another trooper but was himself killed by police.

Autenrieth had kidnapped his 9-year-old son, but the boy wasn’t harmed.

Miller’s survivors include his wife Angela, a state police dispatcher in Luzerne County, and three daughters.
