Husband charged with second degree murder

The Guthrie man accused of killing his wife has been charged with second degree murder.

Clyne Hubbard Miles was charged on Monday afternoon inside the Logan County Courthouse. The 48-year-old was also charged with possession of a firearm after a former conviction of a felony.

Bond has been set at $200,000.

On January 6, Clyne Miles called 911 stating he had been shot at his home by his wife while in bed. Once officers arrived to the home they found Miles in the front yard with a gunshot wound to the left leg. Clyne told officers his wife was in the residence and believed she had been shot.

Officers found the body of Robyn Miles in the master bedroom deceased from a gun shot wound to the chest.

Under the body was a 9 mm casing and in the living room floor was a Glock model 19 9mm hand gun.

In a five page probable cause affidavit, Clyne reportedly told an officer his wife had a firearm and pointed it at his face. Clyne went on to say he attempted to disarm her during a struggle, was struck in the leg by a bullet and passed out. When he woke up he says he called 911.

After being discharged from a Oklahoma City hospital a few short hours later, Clyne was questioned on the shooting at the Guthrie Police Department.

When asked how Robyn got the gun, Clyne said “I have no idea” and that he could not be around guns because he was a convicted felon.

Lt. Mark Bruning says Clyne did not appear to be concerned or show any emotion while being questioned on the events.

However, Bruning says Clyne became nervous when he told him he did not believe his story and asked if he would take a polygraph. Clyne denied to take the polygraph test.

He was then arrested for possession of a firearm and transported to the Logan County Jail.

The following day, investigators were able to trace where the gun was purchased and who had purchased it. That information led them to a friend of 20 years of Clyne.

In a second interview with Clyne at the Logan County Jail, he reportedly told the investigators he placed a cell phone in Robyn’s vehicle because he was concerned who she was taking their kids around. Clyne says he had his friend follow Robyn and found her with another male, who he believed she had been seeing.

The male, who was with Robyn in the vehicle, was interviewed by Bruning and says they began to have strong feelings for one another after meeting a year ago and were making plans to move in together.

The male said he believed Robyn told Clyne about their relationship.

Clyne admitted his friend owned the gun and that it fell out of his friend’s pocket and into his vehicle the night before the shooting. Clyne says he located the gun when he took his children to his mother’s home on the morning of the shooting.

Clyne told investigators he did not know what to do with the gun so he took it inside the residence. He says it was not a scare tactic and that “there was nothing I could to do to change her mind. So instead I decided I was going to kill myself,” according to the court document.

The document goes on to say Clyne pulled the gun out and pointed it to his head. He says Robyn grabbed the gun, they began to wrestle for it and when they went to the floor the gun went off.

He says he felt pain and said “I think I been hit.”

Clyne, who still has the bullet lodged inside his leg, says he recalls hearing only one shot.

When asked if he could see where Robyn had been shot, he said he could see a hole as he pointed toward her chest.

Clyne reportedly told investigators he never intended for it to happen until he found the gun and believed it was a “sign.”

Investigators say they continue to investigate and find additional facts, including the possibility of two shots being fired and one to the leg of Clyne could be self-inflicted, according to the court document.
