Nicaraguan pastor talks of role in Vt. custody case

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Nicaraguan missionary says he didn't believe he was breaking the law when he helped a Virginia woman flee the United States with her daughter rather than share custody of the girl with her former lesbian partner.

Timothy Miller's videotaped testimony was played Thursday in the trial of Kenneth Miller, who is charged with helping the woman flee the country in September 2009 and find a place to live in Nicaragua.

None of the Millers involved in the case are related.

Timothy Miller was charged in the case in 2011, but the charges were dropped in exchange for his cooperation in the case.

He said he first heard about the case of Lisa Miller and her daughter Isabella two days before she arrived in Nicaragua.
