In one text Miller also professed his love for the woman with a crying emoji followed by the comment “but I hope you get murdered.”
Walters said his client, who appeared in court via telephone from the Calgary Correctional Centre, has mental health and addiction issues he hopes to deal with while on probation.
Miller pleaded guilty to four charges, including breaching his no contact provision of his release order and criminal harassment.
He also pleaded to two additional breaches, one for going to the home where she lived and a second for carrying a baseball bat while prohibited from possessing a weapon.
Miller was sentenced on June 8, on a charge of animal cruelty for fatally beating the woman’s kitten, Prince, which he was caring for, when she broke up with him during a series of texts between them where she said he was acting like a 12-year-old.
In a similarly expletive-laden video on May 16, 2019, which Miller sent to her, he beat the kitten so badly it had to be euthanized.
“You think I’m a 12-year-old,” Miller says in the video.
“I just smashed the (crap) out of your stupid cat,” he said in the message.
“That’s what happens when you call me (an expletive) 12-year-old … I just killed your (expletive) cat.”
The woman phoned him and convinced him to take the animal to a clinic, but it was put down.
