DICKSON, Tenn. (WKRN) — Erika Castro-Miles reached a plea agreement Friday morning for second-degree murder in death of Dickson County Sergeant Daniel Baker. The judge sentenced her to 15 years to be served in the Tennessee Department of Correction at 100%.
Her time served since she was taken into custody in 2018 will apply to her sentence.
Judge David Wolfe then explained to the jury the Baker family has agreed to settle the case so they can finally put this matter behind them after enduring multiple trial proceedings.
Judge Wolfe mentioned the jury had not yet seen Sgt. Baker’s body-worn camera that captured his death and the family was consulted at length in this decision.
She had been charged with premeditated first-degree murder in the death of Dickson County Sgt. Daniel Baker. Sgt. Baker was brutally murdered in 2018. Steven Wiggins has been convicted and sentenced to death in the case. Castro-Miles was in the car with Wiggins when Baker was killed.
Testimony was expected to continue Friday morning on Day Three of the trial with the prosecution planning to call two more witnesses.
On the first day of trial, never before seen surveillance and body camera footage, along with the initial 911 call that set the horrific turn of events in motion were played in court — all key evidence shown to the jurors on day one of the trial.
New key evidence was shown on day two of the trial for Erika Castro-Miles. Prosecutors hope to prove Castro-Miles and Steven Wiggins worked in unison killing Sgt. Daniel Baker in 2018.
Sergeant Baker’s widow Lisa told News 2 she feels Castro-Miles is just as guilty as Steven Wiggins.
News 2 spoke with Castro-Miles from jail shortly after her arrest. She said, “I would undo it 10,000 times over. I would undo it every single day of my life if I had to.”
