An Iowa City landlord accused of spying on several female tenants will go to trial July 30 in Johnson County District Court.
Elwyn G. Miller, 63, of Iowa City, will be tried on 11 charges of invasion of privacy involving nudity. At Miller’s pretrial conference Monday, attorney Mark Brown said the trial will continue as scheduled July 30. There will be a final pretrial conference July 26, Brown said.
Miller was arrested in November after a woman told police she caught him watching her shower, according to criminal complaints. Upon further investigation, police accused Miller of spying on tenants between Aug. 1 and Oct. 31 in at least one of his apartment buildings — at 639 S. Lucas St.
Miller, according to the complaints, admitted to spying on female occupants on the top floor that apartment building. He said he would go to peepholes over the girls’ showers if her heard the water running. He admitted to doing it at least once a week, according to the complaints.
Miller also owns properties at 637 and 641 Lucas St. and at 1024 E. Burlington St. It’s unknown whether police identified additional victims in those buildings. Miller, who posted bond in November, appeared at the hearing Monday.
