A two-time accused killer may be responsible for several more killings, a Harris County prosecutor said Monday.

Jeremy Miller, 24, was arrested and charged in the shooting death of Daniel Arp last week. Arp was a security guard at an apartment complex. Months ago, Miller bailed out of jail after being charged in the 2014 murder of Treymane Richardson and the aggravated assault of Gary Newell.

"The defendant told officers that if they allow him to ride in the front of the patrol unit, he would confess to the two murders he is currently charged with and he would confess to four murders that law enforcement did not know about at this time," said DA prosecutor Andrea Koch.

Police said Miller shot his neighbor Gary Newell several times, including in the chest, at their apartment complex. Newell survived.

"I begged him not to kill me," said Newell. "Out of nowhere, he just came up and started shooting."

While in jail, police charged Miller in the murder a month prior. Tremayne Richardson was shot and killed in July of 2014.

"It's been difficult. Very difficult at times," said Richardson's sister Annissia Washington. "He has no morals or anything. He doesn't care if he hurts anyone else."

According to court records, Millers bond was set at $250,000.

"Our system of justice presumes anybody that is innocent until proven guilty. Even somebody who shoots somebody," said ABC-13 legal analyst Joel Androphy.

Miller was set free, but under strict conditions, one of which he was required to wear an ankle monitor. In February, prosecutors charged Miller on assault on a public servant for hitting a jailer during his time in jail. Miller posted another $50,000.

"Our laws do not permit somebody to have multiple chances. You are given one opportunity, if you fail in that opportunity, then you're going to be incarcerated," said Androphy.

According to Houston police, Miller struck again, this time killing security guard Daniel Arp at an apartment complex. He was still wearing that ankle monitor.

Police went to arrest Miller at his apartment on Edgebrook Sunday night, but they say during the arrest, he tried to take an officer's gun and flee. He was taken into custody and police say he confessed to involvement in Arp's killing.

Miller is being held right now with no bond. He is due in court next month on the 2014 murder charge.
