Murder victim's brother shares story on 15th anniversary of his death

Posted: Updated:

Lawton_It was fifteen years ago Sunday, Cristina Cremer and her boyfriend, Robert Miller, were shot to death at an apartment in east Lawton. In a little over a month, September 23, to be exact, David Kemp will finally stand trial for the killings. He surrendered back in April after 14 years on the run.  it's a day Robert's brother, James, approaches with mixed emotions.

"At first, I had all these feelings about what I wanted to have happen to David Lee Kemp. My whole thing now, is, I wish it's a speedy process. I don't want it to last for years," James said.

Miller spent some time Sunday showing us pictures of Robert, and talking about the closeness they shared growing up, being raised by their mother. At the time of Robert's murder, James was living in Washington, but says the distance didn't weaken that bond. And it's something he still misses, fifteen years later.

"Sometimes I wake up and I wish I could give him a call, and it doesn't happen that way. I've been cheated to spend time with my brother for all these years, and the only thing I look forward to is the trial."

James said the time he now spends with his son, helps fill the void.  he says the boy shares Robert's sense of humor, and knows his brother would have loved to watch him grow up. But, it's the thought of what would have been, and what could have been, that still stings.

"If i could say one thing to my brother? I think that's the hardest thing, because I love him, and I miss him. I just miss the love from my brother. That brotherly love is something you can't replace."
