Suspect arrested for murder of tattoo shop owner

GOSHEN — The business partner of Mark, A. Miller, 44, Elkhart, who was murdered in September 2012, has been charged with that crime.

According to Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill, Todd A. Stewart, 35, Bristol, has been arrested on a charge of murder.

Miller’s body was found in a barrel in the St. Joseph River near the Six Span Bridge on Sept. 20, 2012. Miller had been shot to death before his body was placed in the barrel, according to Hill.

Hill said “a business associate” of the two men reported they saw Stewart shoot Miller behind the tattoo shop they owned in Dunlap. The witness then helped Stewart load Miller’s body into a barrel in the back of Stewart’s pickup truck, according to Hill.

Stewart was arrested Wednesday afternoon, according to Hill.
