(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A man who was serving a six-year-to-life prison sentence for murdering his wife with a screwdriver has killed himself in his jail cell.

Prison officials say Charles Miller of Tooele had just begun serving his time, and his body was found Sunday. He had apparently hung himself with a shoelace.

Miller killed his wife, Sharon, a day after she had gone to court to get a protective order against the man. She was at the courthouse in June of 2001 to check on the status of the protection order when Miller rammed his pickup into her vehicle, then ran to the overturned car and stabbed her with a screwdriver.
