BAY CITY, MI — A Bay City man is charged with a 10-year felony due to police alleging he attacked another man that he and his wife had invited into their home and with whom they had engaged in sexual acts.
20-year-old Michael A. Chaney, told officers he is homeless and had been living with Martin R. Miller, 30, and his wife, Daniela D. Miller, 24, at their Bay City residence for about a week.
Daniela Miller was with Chaney at the hospital. She and Chaney gave police similar accounts, saying they and Martin Miller shared a sexual experience about three days prior. In the wake of that encounter, Daniela Miller and Chaney remained romantic without Martin Miller’s knowledge, Chaney said.
“Martin became jealous after we had a threesome because Daniela started to distance herself from him,” Chaney said.
Earlier in the evening of Sept. 12, Chaney was cooking hamburger meat while the Millers were in a bathroom, they said. Chaney brought a spoonful of meat into the bathroom to have them taste-test it, but Martin Miller threw the meat into the tub in which his wife bathed.
Chaney brought a second spoonful of meat, and Martin Miller again tossed it into the tub water. Chaney told Miller to stop wasting food and walked into another room. Martin Miller followed him and threatened to beat him up, Chaney said.
Chaney told Miller to go ahead, at which point Miller kicked him in the chest, pushed his wife out of the way and choked Chaney, both Chaney and Daniela Miller told police. Chaney said Miller told him he was going to kill him, then he blacked out.
Police went to the Millers’ home and spoke with Martin Miller. He confirmed much of the accounts given by his wife and Chaney, saying he threw the hamburger in the tub as a joke and that Chaney was being an “(expletive)hole.”
Miller told police he asked his wife why she always takes Chaney’s side in a dispute. He also said that Chaney called his bluff when he threatened to beat him up.
“I am a marine,” Miller told police. “When someone challenges me I go into kill mode.”
Miller told police he choked Chaney, but didn’t recall if he kicked him or not.
“He didn’t lose consciousness,” he added, “but I did it hard enough for him to know.”

Keith what do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to write articles about a guy who beat up a homeless guy who was currently having a threeway sexual relationship with him and his wife because he asked him to taste test the hamburger meat he was making but he threw it in the bathtub so he went back to get some more hamburger meat and he threw it in the bathtub again and the homeless guy told him not to waste food so he got out of the tub and beat him up because he’s a Marine who went into kill mode and doesn’t like when people tell him not to waste food in his own house and kicked him hard enough to let him know nobody messes with his wife or his hamburger meat.
And they say dreams don’t come true? It’s like a Disney fairy tale.
PS – In case you couldn’t follow the story or my run-on sentence here are the Sparknotes: couple takes in a homeless man into their home. They have a threesome. The homeless guy and the wife develop a connection during said threesome and it becomes more romantic (thus laying the groundwork for tension in the marriage). The homeless man decides to cook some hamburgers for everyone. The husband and wife take a bath together. The homeless man asks them to taste test the meat. The husband throws it in the tub. This happens a second time. The homeless man says don’t waste food (as a homeless man he has come to appreciate the value of food). The husband kicks the absolute shit out of him. The end. Michigan.
