Federal prosecutors say a Virginia man helped a former Vermont woman leave the country with her daughter
so she wouldn't have to turn custody of the girl over to her former lesbian partner.
The U.S. Attorney's office in Burlington says 46-year-old Kenneth L. Miller of Stuarts Draft, Va., surrendered Tuesday to face charges stemming from his role in helping Lisa Miller leave the country with her daughter in September 2009.
The complaint says that Kenneth Miller contacted associates in Canada and Nicaragua who helped Miller and her daughter Isabella travel to Nicaragua. The Millers are not related.
Lisa Miller had been engaged in a custody dispute with her former lesbian partner Janet Jenkins of Fair Haven. She fled after a judge ordered the girl to be turned over to Jenkins.
