The New Britain Herald reports that 38-year-old Patrick Miles waived his right to a probable-cause hearing on Tuesday and entered his plea instead. He is being held on $2.5 million bond.
Authorities say the New Britain man shot his wife, Yasheeka Miles, in the head in their home on April 7.
He left the scene with his 2-year-old daughter, who was later found unharmed with relatives in New York City. Patrick Miles was arrested in West Springfield, Massachusetts, several days later.
The couple had a history of domestic violence and friends say she was planning on leaving him.
Miles’ public defender didn’t comment.
