New trial date for Woodstock woman involved in murder

WOODSTOCK – The trial has been continued to March 11 for a Woodstock woman charged with prostitution in connection with the death of a former court security officer.

Charges against Kimberly A. Smith, 30, also include obstruction of justice and false report of an offense in connection with the shooting in May 2011 that left Kurt Milliman dead.

Smith had been scheduled to go to trial Monday, but her attorney, Mark Facchini, is still awaiting additional documents and recordings, according to his motion to continue.

These include 911 audio recordings of Smith and her husband, Timothy A. Smith, as well as crime scene photography and video.

Timothy Smith’s murder trial is scheduled for Feb. 25.

Police have said Milliman responded to an online ad for sex with Kimberly Smith and a dispute broke out, possibly over money. Timothy Smith’s attorney, Assistant Public Defender Kim Messer, has said her client shot Milliman in self-defense.

Facchini also requested more information from prosecutors about what Kimberly Smith allegedly said to a McHenry County sheriff’s deputy. She is accused of making statements regarding a home invasion without reasonable grounds to believe that there actually was one.

An incident report by the deputy, however, does not mention or reference any statement Smith made, Facchini said.

He would like to know Smith’s exact statement, when she made it, and whether she was in custody or handcuffed at the time.

Milliman, 48, of Prairie Grove, was the brother of a former sheriff’s deputy and also owned an Island Lake bar.
