A man accused of killing his wife and performing a lewd act with a human corpse was back in a Logan County courtroom for a preliminary hearing, but again the hearing did not happen.
Clyne Hubbard Miles, 52, waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Friday morning with his public defender attorneys Lane Fitz and Joan Lopez. The decision came moments before the attorneys were prepared to argue the case.
Miles waived his preliminary hearing in January 2020 and prepared for a trial case. However, in October 2021, the case was placed back on the preliminary hearing docket upon the request of Miles.
At a preliminary hearing, the State of Oklahoma (district attorney’s office) is required to introduce evidence to establish probable cause that a crime was committed and probable cause that the defendant committed the crime.
The case dates back to January 2019 when Miles was arrested and charged with the death of his spouse Robyn Miles, who was found deceased inside their home at 125 Viking Dr.

Miles called 911 stating he had been shot at his home by his wife while in bed. Once officers arrived at the home they found Miles in the front yard with a gunshot wound to the left leg. Clyne told officers he believed she had been shot.
Clyne reportedly said his wife had a firearm and pointed it at him, and during a struggle, he was struck in the leg by a bullet and passed out. When he woke up he said he called 911.
In a second interview with investigators, Miles was said to have been nervous when told his story did not add up. He later declined to take a polygraph test.
Miles, who remains in the Logan County Jail on a $200,000 bond, has been charged on three counts, including murder, lewd acts with a human corpse, and possession of a firearm after a former conviction of a felony.
The murder charge is first-degree or in the alternative of second-degree murder.
In 2003, Miles was convicted of kidnapping and assault.
He’s expected back in court on Oct. 27 for a trial court arraignment.
