After hearing arguments in Marinette County Circuit Court on Wednesday, May 11, Door County Circuit Judge Todd D. Ehlers agreed with Defense Attorney Greg A. Petit of Menasha that counts against Douglas P. Miron, 50, of Marinette should be separated. Miron will have two separate jury trials on the nine felony counts brought against him in August of 2015 by prosecutors from the Wisconsin State Attorney General's Office. In December Miron had entered "not guilty" pleas to all counts.

The first of the two trials is scheduled for Oct. 18 through 21 in the Marinette County Courtroom where the defendant's brother, Judge David Miron, usually presides.

A 12-member jury and two alternates will be selected to hear the six charges involving Brittany M. Carlson, Miron's former employee and girlfriend. Those counts, dating back to 2011, are for recklessly endangering safety, stalking, burglary to a building or dwelling and perjury before the court. If convicted on all counts Miron could face a total of 59.5 years in prison and/or $120,000 in fines.

The remaining three counts, for which a trial date will be set later, are about an alleged incident on Aug. 27, 2013, involving a Robert Poquette and Sarah Campbell. Poquette is reportedly a former employee of Miron. Miron is accused of pointing a gun at the couple in a McDonald's Restaurant in Marinette and then following their vehicle and ramming it with his pickup truck.
